[Bug 911905] Re: hitting enter on install screen 1 forces language to top selection


To reproduce this issue, 
1.  insert a cd in the drive
2.  when the cd starts, select the default language. 
3.  Make sure you are at the cd menu, not the later selection screen that has only two choices. This has the F-keys across the bottom and at least 4 items in the menu
4.  Select the second item in the menu, "Install ???"
5.  At the next screen, hit Enter on the keyboard.
