Bug#756996: mentions of 2.6 kernel in the d-i manual

Package: installation-guide
Tags: patch


in the d-i manual, I have noticed there are some mentions of 
2.6 kernel being the default kernel series in Debian.

I have prepared a patch to fix that (attached).

shipped with the respective release.
Would it be worse to add such an entity? 
Is 3.14 kernel for Jessie correct?



Created with Sylpheed 3.2.0 under the new
