Hm, not sure what changes might have affected this, it's surely
not intentional.  :)  The slides that show during installation were
originally in multiple languages, but since this is just a "nice"
feature, I didn't take the time to have _those_ translated. :)  Perhaps
something happened when I took the other languages out of anaconda-pixmaps.

At least that one is in the readme!

Hm, didn't test this; again I'd have to look for the problem.

The whole installer exercise this time was quick-n-dirty, I'm just
happy that it _mostly_ works.  :)  If anyone wants to send patches to
fix these problems, we can look at updating it, but I'm not going to be
able to spend time on it anytime in the near future.
