Win GAs installation dialog; clarify Direct3D vs WDDM installation option.

When installing the GAs in a Win7 guest, the following question is asked at the graphics interface choice phase:

This system supports the Windows Aero (WDDM) interface.
VirtualBox support for this feature is experimental and should not be used on production systems yet.

Would you like to install basic Direct3D support instead?

The answer is a "Yes"/"No" one. I believe that it could be clearer if the answer was "Install Direct3D"/"Install WDDM".

I tried to find the dialog answers in "/vbox/src/VBox/Additions/WINNT/Installer/Languages/English.nsh" but there seems to be no provision to change the text in the "Yes"/"No" buttons.

I know that the change has to happen in "/vbox/trunk/src/VBox/Additions/WINNT/Installer/VBoxGuestAdditions.nsi" as well, I just don't know how to implement custom buttons in the NSI installer.
