CD/DVD boot loader enhancements

Registered by Matt Zimmerman on 2005-10-19

The current i386/amd64 CD boot loader (isolinux) and configuration are not very user-friendly. Prompts can only be displayed in one language, and responses must be typed in by the user.

We should evaluate available options for replacements, and ways to simplify the process for the user, including:

 - Displaying a countdown and automatically continuing after a timeout
 - Allowing language selection from the boot loader
 - Localized help
