Description of problem:
In the 'bootdiskette creation part' of Anaconda, the following text can
be read :

 "The boot diskette allows you to boot your Red Hat Linux system from a
  floppy diskette. A boot disk allows you to boot your system .. <snip>"

 ".. Insert a floppy disk .. <snip>"

 "Please remove any diskettes from the floppy drive, and insert the floppy
  diskette that is to contain the boot disk <snip>"

(or something similar).

Note the inconsistent usage of the word disk and diskette.

I think there should only be mention of the word "disk" and not "diskette".

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Red Hat Linux
2. observe

Actual Results:
I saw in the 'boot diskette creation' section inconsistent usage of
the words "disk" and "diskette".

Expected Results:  Either "disk" or "diskette", but not both words.

("disk" sounds better than "diskette" in this case).

This still happens in Red Hat Linux 8.0.
