Bug#264302: installation: suggest 2 changes in user interface

Package: installation
Severity: normal

I am using beta 4 net install to install Sarge.

In two places I was confused by the screen prompts. What they
say could be said better, I think.

1. Concerning GRUB, the user is given three choises:
	<go back>    <yes>    <no>
There is no indication that LILO is a supported option.
Instead, reword the preamble and give four choises:
	<go back>   <GRUB>  <LILO>  <NONE>

2. DHCP is given as the only choise, and sometimes the user is not
even warned. It seems it just happens without comment.  This should be
changed. Add a screen that offers, e.g.,

    <DHCP>   <manual configuration>

General comment: Very good. A vast improvement over what has been.
