Is this the German version of the install manual from the boot-floppies

I've done a lot of work on helping to internationalize and multi-platform
that file, but there's more to be done.  I hope to have all major
structural problems done by this weekend's end, after which it's just
a question of correcting here and there, etc.

Well, I was hoping to get the user started.  I'm curious how
the flow is.  I agree it's going to be the last thing in the manual,
if it goes in there at all.  I need to perhaps give *some* instructions
for using the CDROM.  Have instructions that worked for the *official*
CD would perhaps encourage vendors to use the official one rather
than a broken one.

Ok, I'll take that under advisement.

What do y'all think of one big HTML file vs one per chapter?
Is it ok to no have just one big HTML file?  I've got a working copy
using debiandoc which doesn't seem to have the capability of writing
one big HTML file, which seems rather confusing and cumbersome anyway.
