Bug#253106: netcfg: Please be more specific about what happens when not retrying HDCP

Package: netcfg
Severity: normal

Reported initally by Andree Leidenfrost:

Dear all

The DHCP retry screen in d-i implies that there is a DHCP server
available in the user's network and offers to retry. It fails to mention
what to do if there is no DHCP server available in the first place which
should not be uncommon.

And indeed, d-i takes perfect care of situations where there is no DHCP
to be found by asking the user to specify the network configuration
manually. Unfortunately, the DHCP retry screen completely fails to
mention this fact which may potentially confuse users.

Andree suggested adding something like this to this template.

"If you do not choose this option, you will be prompted to configure
the network manually."
