Hi i use Debian and i think that the first screen i see when trying the 
Debian ISO file is ISOLINUX.

This first screen is only in english it seems.

I would like this screen to be in other languages so i can switch to my 

Any there and way to translate it or are any work being done to make it 

I see a warning on http://www.syslinux.org/wiki/index.php?title=Download 
about GFXBoot.
I don't know if its GFXBoot that give Ubuntu the possibility to select 
language with F2 and keymap with F3 on the first screen but i would like 
something simalar, but instead of having to translate it Multiple places 
like for Ubuntu and SuSE and Mandriva it would be better to have the 
translation in syslinux/isolinux and then all the distrubutions could 
use that.

As this is the first screen that the user and new users see when they 
try out a Linux distribution i would very much like to see it translated 
to my language so more people would have a better experience. Espicially 
if they dont understand english.
