Correction: s/--enable -F/--interrupt n/ (Was: Re: mbr -- drawing the issue to a close)

 A correction... 2.2.6 now in fact uses `--interrupt n', not `--enable
 -F', so that there is no prompt on keypress during boot.  See for
 yourselves...  (The first define is only active while TESTING is defined.)

 $ grep install-mbr /usr/local/src/cvs.debian.org/debian-boot/boot-floppies/utilities/dbootstrap/bootconfig.c
#define BC_INST_MBR    "/sbin/install-mbr --interrupt n %s"
#define BC_INST_MBR    "export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=\"/target/lib:/target/usr/lib\"; /target/sbin/install-mbr  --interrupt n %s"
	wideMessageBox(_("The master boot record program that was just installed supports several advanced options that have not been enabled by default.  The installed configuration will cause it to behave just like a standard MBR.  For information about the advanced features supported by the mbr, please read the 'install-mbr' manual page."), _("Important Information about the installed MBR"));

a different fix for install-mbr, now set to not prompt unless error;
this should fix matters IMHO while still allowing emergancy use
