Bug Description

boot live cd,
at opening boot menu
f1 for help,
f3 for "boot methods"
the text says do this and that at "the boot prompt"
there is no "boot: prompt" anymore - most of that page is farily meaningless as it is writtin.
same wtith the "F4-Rescue mode", F5,6,7,8.

Hitting "F6-Other Options" does get you a "Boot Options" prompt with some parameters preloaded. that needs to replace the "boot: promt" refs.

I don't have the live handy, but I am looking at the edgy server cd and see similar issues.
