I vaguely remember this feature being requested before but i cant 
remember/see if it was ever implemented.

Basically what i want is for the option the user has currently selected to 
display help text at the bottom of the screen..

| -----------------------------------------|
| option 1                                       |
| option 2                                       |
|                                                        |
|                                                        |
| You have selected option 1 |

In the cfg files it should look like the following

LABEL MainMenu
        MENU LABEL ^Main Menu
        MENU DESC  Will return you to the main menu.
        KERNEL vesamenu.c32

The reason I am requesting this is that I intend to server Firmware 
updates via PXE for some of my servers, However I need to be able to 
easily and clearly tell which is which and also what each applies to 
(which may be several different servers).
