Installation Guide will need updating for alpha2

Description

Toward the bottom of the Installation guide at http://www.haiku-os.org/get-haiku/installation-guide there is the following:

Boot using the CD

You can also use the boot CD to boot into your Haiku installation without adding it to a boot manager. To do so, press the space bar on your keyboard as soon as the CD begins to load. This will bring up the boot loader menu as seen in the following screenshot.

Granted, using the space bar on the Alpha1 is correct behavior, but this was changed awhile ago. I don't know what the current key to use is. It will need to be updated for the Alpha2 release.

Well spotted, Disreali. There's another occurrence near the top (search for 'space bar').

I'll make the changes when alpha2 is upon us. I'll also update the screenshots. I'd like to have release-neutral shots, i.e. without the "alpha" stamp. That way we don't have to retake screenshots for every release.

I worked over the screenshots of the Installation Guide but don't know how to exchange images or upload them. I attached all changed images zipped up. Can someone make the exchange?

BTW, I didn't go through the whole process and took all screenshots anew. I just faked around a bit with WonderBrush... :)

The Installation Guide on the website is for the current official release, which is still Alpha 1. So I don't recommend overwriting the Alpha 1 guide with Alpha 2 stuff until the latter is actually released.

It may just be a better idea to leave the alpha 1 pages alone, and instead create a separate copy of the whole group of pages including Get Haiku and underneath where changes for Alpha 2 can be made. Then, when alpha 2 is released, just change the path and you should be done.

Just a thought.

As I wrote: "I'd like to have release-neutral shots, i.e. without the "alpha" stamp. That way we don't have to retake screenshots for every release."

The shots are neutral so they can be exchanged right now.

@humdinger: I understand. I was not referring specifically to the screenshots, but to changes to the guide in general, including the text that this bug report proposes.

Since the textual changes are so minute, I don't think it's necessary for the installation page.
Anyway... here are the changed screenshots, if anyone wants to do more that exchanging "Space" for "Shift".
