Ergh. I don't know much about the current boot-floppies (I plan to get involved quite soon), but wouldn't it make more sense to put more useful things on there?
Not that having hebrew installer text isn't useful if that's your only language, but couldn't there be seperate boot-floppy flavors for different languages?
It seems really bad to me to have such a percentage of such a tiny space filled with something i can't really use, not knowing all of those languages.
It just makes more sense to me to seperate the languages in favor of improved nicety.
