Yes, as we had with the previous scheme: our localization approach made us
create one bootable disk for every language.  That's why (if I remember
correctly) the idea to provide all disks was thrown away: we had to include
14 (or something) disks for i386, 14 for ... etc.

I do remember about that.  But when I try to create a bootable disk, I fail. :)

And it looks there is a problem with fonts.  At least, I could not find a
resolution yet.
