You may remove the "formatting" ones (like in "Running LILO to make the kernel
able to boot from the \n hard disk without a boot floppy..."), but please
leave the "end of paragraph" ones ("... and initialize a swap
partition.\nPlease use the main menu to ..."). Also, some messages are
not being showed using newt, but directly printed to the console
("You are running \"ash\", a Bourne-shell clone...").
I have now done so.
