Okay, this is a general warning, which should be showed to all users.
The simple hack I made few days ago, is a special for i386 users (the
masses of i^hbeginners). It checks the bootability-flag on each CD and
shows a warning then. I don't think many users have bootable CDs in the
bay all the time, but only if they are installing from that disk.

User:     Ich hätte gern ein paar MByte Speicher.
malloc(): OK. Welche Sicherheiten haben sie?
