Bug#579954: installation-guide: Add link from accessibility section to boot screen section

Package: installation-guide
Version: 20090901
Severity: wishlist


It has been reported that it would be useful to add a link from the
accessibility to the boot screen section, as the attached patch does,
since the latter describes precisely how keypresses work there.

The nice thing about Windows is - It does not just crash, it displays a
dialog box and lets you press 'OK' first.
