regional list for americas

Description of problem:

When installing in Text Mode, when one reaches the region list under time zone settings, the list might be too big to fit in one screen.
Example, americas.

Proposal, display few items, add a pause and the option to continue listing (default) or select (s) one of the displayed items.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
f18 tc5 dvd

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot with text
2. enter time zone settings, select americas
3. a big list appears, only the last part of the list is show
Expected results:
see proposal above.

regional list for americas (another guest)

Additional info:

In this new guest (VNC:cirrus) it seems to use a frame-buffer: 
"(cirrusdrmfb (fb0) is primary device"

So the screen is larger than 80x25 of the other guest (spice:qlx) wich gets the real vga text mode.

So in this case the list did fit in the screen (VNC:cirrus).

I tried with F18-TC1 (anaconda 18.36) and the issue is still there.
A pause is needed on certain regions (like Americas) because the list is too large.
