Bug Description

Installing from a DVD (Xubuntu 13.04 64-bit in this case) offers two buttons: one to try running the OS from the DVD, and the other to install the OS directly. One of the panels which is displayed during the installation process suggests experimenting with the live environment while the installation is taking place. This panel is displayed regardless of whether the installation was launched from within the live environment or with the button to skip directly to the installation (in which case there isn't anything to experiment with during the installation). It would give new users a more confident feeling about the system they're installing if their first impression didn't make it look like the folks who created the installation program weren't paying attention. :-)

Since there is no way we can make a difference between the direct installation and installation via the "Try Xubuntu" -mode, we will need to either delete the note, or preferably, change the wording to something like "If you are running the installer via the 'Try Xubuntu' -mode..."
