I think I am talking about potato (it may be a point release), 
and yes I think the quick and easy hack can be done for potato b-f.
Since the overall rewrite will be done for woody, doing it at this
stage is not effective approach.

Can you provide me a patch to modify basedisks.sh, yosshy ?

Maybe not.  Anyway, since termwrap has benefit on potato base system,
I think we can work to put it in our boot-floppies.

P.S.
I have not created my patch to add the support for "language add-on pack"
yet, but I wish to have it for potato...
