Debian-Live install to hard disk

I recently tried debian-live (lenny cd). It looks insteresting. Would like to install to hard disk.
How to do it? There is no installer script like knoppix or mepis.
Can anyone suggest me how to install debian-live to hard disk? I don't want to start with installing debian itself but prefer to install from live CD to HDisk
Please dont suggest to try knoppix or ubuntu etc. I already know those distros. Specifically interested in debian-live
Thanks in advance

All you need is the 1st cd iso or the kde iso if you are going with kde.
I don't know what you have with the "live" cd. I think the install of choice is to get the system up and running and then use apt to install what ever else you want/need.

thanks for reply.
if i make debian-live cd with my own customization, then hand over to average joe to try. Joe likes it and decides to install on hard disk. He needs script to install...
I cannot suggest Joe to go back to debian and install and customize I did..

It looks like it's possible. Of course, there's no mention of how to invoke it...

EDIT: looks like it failed to make the "official" release images, but can be made for a custom image.

Please only post your question in one forum, not in multiple forums at the same time.. I see you have done this a couple times now.

consult the Forum Rules for other information that will make your visits here more productive.
Do not post the same discussion in more than one forum. Duplicate discussions can be frustrating for other members. Try and pick the most relevant forum for your post. If you are unsure put it in Linux - General.

Thanks !!
