   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.
