Bug#69159: boot-floppies: Rephrase pre-reboot message

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.2.16-2000-07-20
Severity: wishlist

The installer says

   If you are ready to reboot the system, you should have the boot
   floppy (if you created one) in the first floppy drive, or no
   floppy in the first floppy drive if you want to boot directly
   from the hard disk, or the Debian Rescue floppy if you want to
   reboot the installation system.

   Please take care of that before you answer "Yes" to the
   following question.

   Reboot the system?    [Yes] [No]

It would be better to rewrite this dialog so that the text is
more directly related to the task.  Something like

   To reboot the system, your (first) floppy drive should have

     * No floppy (to boot your system from your hard disk)

     * The boot floppy you just created (to boot from floppy)

     * The Debian Rescue floppy (to restart the installation)

   When you're ready, choose [Reboot] to continue.

                                        [Cancel]  [Reboot]
