It doesn't seem to have a boot options menu ( f1 or f2 ) like some livecd distros. However, I viewed the isolux.cfg from my Feora box and there are some things you could try.
You could try booting into runlevel three and do XFdrake from there. To get into different run modes like that, type it in at the boot prompt.

For example: livecd init 3

You could also try the second option by typing: safeboot

Here is the isolinux.cfg
Code:
default livecd
prompt  1
timeout 50
label livecd
    kernel vmlinuz
    append livecd=livecd initrd=initrd.gz root=/dev/ram3 devfs=nomount psmouse.proto=imps acpi=ht nomce vga=788 keyb=us
label safeboot
    kernel vmlinuz
    append livecd=livecd initrd=initrd.gz root=/dev/ram3 acpi=off vga=normal keyb=us noapic nolapic noscsi nopcmcia nomce unionfs=no
label initrd
    kernel vmlinuz
    append livecd=initrd initrd=initrd.gz root=/dev/ram3 devfs=nomount psmouse.proto=imps acpi=ht nomce vga=788 keyb=us
label memtest
    kernel memtest
label mediacheck
    kernel vmlinuz
    append livecd=livecd md5sum initrd=initrd.gz root=/dev/ram3 devfs=nomount psmouse.proto=imps acpi=ht nomce vga=788 keyb=us

NOPE NONE OF EM WORKED , just created a swap partition and it worked fine (2 gb partition on my HARDDISK) i figured out since it ihas a great amount of data compressed then it must b having a hardtime loading but now i m facing another problemo that is when i start the install in harddisk , it doesnot go futtyher than 11% and the elapsed time and estimated time left keeeps on increasing along with the total time but no furthur increase , have waited about 30 minutes since 11%

RINGING ANY BELLS on this one??.........

I don't know what the recommended system specs are. Maybe, have a look at their web site and see if your computer has enough memory, cpu and hard drive.
