Suggested changes and updates.

I went through Installation Guide (Edition 1.0) and came up with suggestions for update in attached file. The wording needs some work, sometimes I only basically describe what is happening. The screenshots I refer to in the document are only informative, their theme doesn't fit the one used in the guide.

To update the attachment from description:

> - 28.1.5. Manually Configuring the Network Settings
>   Also network device selection dialog (screenshot [3]) which appears
>   before the "Configure TCP/IP" screen in case of more NICs present
>   (there may be some automatic selection like ibft device preferred
>   automatically, we are investigating how it works exactly to provide
>   description), and corresponding ksdevice boot option could be mentioned.

Indeed, the only automatic device selection (in case of missing ksdevice= boot option) should happen when ibft device with link is detected.

Thanks Radek; all issues addressed in build 1.0-37

Note to QE: This is probably best checked against the html-single version of the doc. Radek's attachments include the multiple specific sections and subsections to which his comments apply. These numbers remain unchanged in the current build, so searching for them should confirm his suggested changes in place in every case.
