Bug#707479: iso-scan: Indicate .iso files must be _Debian_ files

Quoting George Chriss (gschriss@gmail.com):
> Package: iso-scan
> Version: 1.43
> Under advanced install, Main Menu, there's a menu option to "scan hard

> In the Debian-installer log:

> May  9 08:27:09 iso-scan: Debian ISO not usable, skipping

So, if I understand properly, you're suggesting that the template
mentions that what is searched for is a "Debian" installer ISO, right?

If so, I would propose "scan hard drives for a supported installer ISO
image"....and a small update to the installation manual to mention
that ISO images have to be named s specific way.

This way, we avoid "branding" by "Debian" and the template can still
be used by derived distros (I suspect they do patch iso-scan in order
to search for ISO images prepended by FooBar_).
