Hello Spike,

Well, I use a European language, and I have not had any problems setting 
the language. But now I know, that there can be problems.

Is there a reason, why you start from the mini.iso instead of from a 
Lubuntu iso file (for example that you must install from a CD disk)?

You could also try starting from the Ubuntu Server iso file (which is 
also small enough to boot from a CD disk).

Best regards
