ash scripts are hard to localize.
I've done a quick work to have installation disks in italian for
Debian 1.3, but for Debian 1.4 or 2.0 I'll use a better system. At
the moment I've modified only some file in the resc1440.bin floppy,
keeping original drv1440.bin and the whole base system.

The problem is the limited size of the installation boot floppy, that
cannot keep all the language (it is possible to enlarg root.bin, put
in it all languages and remove unused languages after starting
A bootable CD can use a 2.88Mb floppy image (I think). The problem is
for 1.44Mb floppy.
PS. Im not subscribed to debian-devel. Is it a problem?
