Bug#509662: graphical splash screen not iLO compatible

Package: debian-installer

When the Debian installer is booted (either from CD or netboot), it displays a graphical splash screen (splash.rle)

When someone is accessing a server remotely using a HP iLO, they may not have the iLO licensed for graphical modes (extra license fees have to be paid to HP)

Alternatively, someone may be using a serial port for remote access (e.g. through a Cisco 2511 with multiple async ports)

Therefore, it would be desirable to have one of these options:
- a non-graphical variation of the install CD
- a pause before entering graphical mode, with the user having the chance to press a key choosing non-graphical install
- no use of graphics until the user has explicitly agreed
