Debian Lenny on eeePC

So, I just finished installing Debian Lenny on my eeePC701, following the instructions on the [Debian eeePC wiki](http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEeePC/HowTo/Install). First attempt failed in phase 'installing packages' due to an unrecoverable error trying to fetch/install some language (i18n) file (didn't note the exact name), appearantly as a result of my choice of language 'german'.
