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?)
