I have made some suggestions for the 1st chapter of the Woody x86 install
doc.  I did not get all the way through, before I got overwhelmed, and
already had the product installed.  My suggestions are presented here in the
order that they would appear in the document.  Although, I understand that
the translations are excellent, I have used some energy to try and consider
people that are not native English speakers in my word choose.

Also, could you please contact the appropriate ppl to have
to identify the architecture near the top of the page.

codebase has reached its end of life. boot-floppies is only in Debian

The new installer for sarge and beyond is of course, the
debian-installer. It solves a great many issues present in the

If you believe that your boot-floppies bug is still present in
debian-installer somehow, then please reopen the bug report and reassign
it there, or perhaps better, file a new bug report.
