I've committed it in my local git-svn repo together with my own patch. One error in the patch: the "back" option in the advanced menu does not need the "help" help text... I've made a few very minor other changes, but nothing that really changes the patch. If others want to give it a try: http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/fjp/debian-50-amd64-i386-BC-1.iso The color Franklin has chosen for the help text is yellow. Personally I'm fine with that. Strangely enough VirtualBox now suddenly no longer tries to boot the amd64 image (as I mentioned in #505243), but correctly selects i386 when I hit enter from the help screen boot prompt. This may be related to the fact that I now run 2.6.28-rc5 on the host system instead of 22.214.171.124. I'll try to confirm that. Cheers, FJP
