No. You should study the RH floppies more. The prefered language is
selected in the first floppy. The tranlated messages are splitted
into 3 pieces. The first goes to the first floppy, the second to the
second floppy, the other to the CDROM or FTP archive.
Hmm.. I wonder why we should retain the current boot-floppies
structure (rescue -> base system -> dselect).
(NINE floppies. NINE floppies are required to install slink. When I
installed 1.1, six floppies were required. How many in potato?)
