Thanks for your answer.
Your question makes me think that I should have given a bit more of context
I am internationalizing Slackware's installer, thus the user should choose in which locale (s)he sees messages during the (text) installation.
There are basically two steps in the process:
(1) isolinux is used to provide the user with the ability of setting parameters in the boot command line, including which kernel to boot with (Incidentally, a that time (s)he can choose to boot an existing system instead of installing, and run testmem).
(2) Linux is booted, then the installation process occurs.
Basically I'd like that something I type in step (1) be used in step (2) so that the choice of UI's language be made really early.
PS I want to provide an internationalized installer, not several localized installers.
