If your intention is to translate only the "info" pages (the green pages
which appairs during setup process) this is easy to perform.

Any in /setup/fun has an own info() function. You can add
a simple diversion of this kind:

        LANG=`cat /etc/language.conf`
        eval info_$LANG

then, add info_en(), info_it(), info_fr(), etc. in the same file.

But if you want to translate all the intermediate question coming
from, for example, the PPP or ETH setup, more work needed :(


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
