I doubt very much that is all it says....

Normally the sequence is (from memory)

choose language
choose terminal type
choose networking information
choose timezone
choose drive to install on
choose upgrade or initial
choose backup or not
choose what to install
choose layout
choose root password
install base
install additional
reboot
