Description bernd.hentig 1998-12-04 11:04:05 UTC
When selecting Language "GERMAN" from the installation menu,
the boxes around the menu selections change to ISO8859-1
characters (unreadable), thus making the whole installation
procedure look very unprofessional.

Testes Hardware: DEC Multia

The fonts used for German and some other languages don't have the
special characters to make the smoth lines, and there's not much that
can be done about it.
