Right, we'll want to add help screens to syslinux for all of our images
in any case. I think I understand now, isolinux uses its own help
screens which it reads from the CD, and these come from debian-cd (for
now..), but we can control the rest of them.

I don't particularly want to make the decision about which CD has
isolinux on it and which uses the old method. I do want to get the help
texts straightened out and preferably in one place, and I do want to
have a netinst CD without isolinux on it. Anything you guys decide that
accomplishes that is 100% fine with me, you are the ones who know all
about isolinux.
