(forw) [RFR] D-I Manual: new section on how to load firmware during installs

Well, Frans' English generally has great quality and it's probably not
time to change the writing style of the installation manual but,
still, if someone could review this, that would be good.

Note for post-lenny: a general review of the Debian Installation
Manual, certainly one of the best-maintained documentations we have,
woul dbe good.

There was at least one important new feature of the installer missing in 
the installation guide that IMO should be documented before we can 
consider freezing it for the final translation update and upload for 
Lenny. And that is the new option to load firmware during installation.

I have written a draft text for that. Review and comments welcome.

The main description is in a new section:
- http://people.debian.org/~fjp/tmp/d-i/manual/ch06s04.html

Besides that I've added short introductions regarding firmware with links 
to the new section in the following places:
- http://people.debian.org/~fjp/tmp/d-i/manual/ch02s02.html
- http://people.debian.org/~fjp/tmp/d-i/manual/ch06s03.html

Note that the linked version of the manual also contains some other 
uncommitted changes. The structure of chapter 2 has been revised a bit 
because of the firmware changes.
