`install-mbr -e -F -e -A -k -i n DEV' would be better, to disable
`F'loppy, `A'dvanced mode, and `i'nterrupt with shift key during
boot. I think it was decided today to make that the default
configuration, and let people adjust it to suite themselves by
running `install-mbr' with whatever switches they like.

There ought to be a message about that during installation of `mbr'.
