Auto-focus options in Live View

Hello:

I'm a relative "newbie", and I have a k10d. I'm wondering what the "auto-focus options in live view" mean exactly. I'm assuming "live view" is looking thru the view finder?

Tks!

There are 3 AF Live View options

Face Detect

Contrast

Phase Difference

Phase Difference cancels Live view and performs AF with the sensor

Live view in not looking though the view finder, it is looking at the LCD on the back. In live view the mirror is up and the sensor displays the image on the LCD like an EVIL or P&S would display an image.
