Partner organization:

LiveCDs (and LiveUSBs) are extremely nice features for showing and
promoting openSuse. Everything is configured automatically in order for
the user to have a usable desktop as quickly as possible.
However, keyboard and (to a lesser extent) wireless are mandatory
devices that need manual configuration.
During the boot process of those Live installs there should be a window
for configuring those devices. Or at least on the desktop there should
be easily recognisable icons for this configuration.

I completely agree. There should at least be a Keyboard layout
configuration option in the DOS start screen, just like Ubuntu has.
Please, this is a matter of life and death!
