Description of problem:
The installer permit to set the grub password. However, if the keyboard is not
set to "querty" this can be confusing.

For exemple, install RedHat Linux and set the keyboard to "fr" (azerty) and
enter the password "azerty" to grub. When booting from the hard disk, you should
type "qwerty" on the keyboard to enter the password at the grub prompt.

At least, anaconda should print a warning to explain that setting of the
keyboard can be different from anaconda and the BIOS (under grub).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Install RedHat Linux with a non querty keyboard and set the grub password.
