Thanks for adding this information.

On the first page, you say:

   "The second stage of anaconda configures all the settings such as
    language and keyboard mapping..."

This is only true if you are booting off the CD/DVD.  If you are network
booting, you will get the language and keyboard screens in stage1.  This
is because we may need to present more advanced dialogs that will
require knowing that information.

Also, stage2 can look like stage1 if you are doing a text mode install.
The key for telling what stage you're in across all modes of
installation really is that "Running anaconda, the whatever system
installer" message.

Now, keep in mind that we're not pushing text mode anymore and most
people are booting off the CD/DVD.  Maybe mentioning these things would
just add confusion.
