Added multi-selected support in SVN now :)

Fixed that in SVN last night, was a bug loading translation files

Is it that the wallpaper isn't stretched, or that your are running in 1024x768 and
its not filling the entire screen? I.E. can you move your mouse to the black areas? If thats
the case, then its normal. My intel laptop here does that, when it runs in 1024x768, it doesn't stretch
to fill the screen, its a driver issue.

No, thats correct. For now it doesn't prompt for a hostname, just generates one. The previous installer
did that as well, but I may add the hostname field to the GUI in the future.
