Fedora-17 Irritations

Hello list,

Having been chastised for posting the following on the "Users" list - in 
my ignorance - I'm repeating it here:

I've just installed the beta in a VM so as to evaluate GNOME 3.4 (and 
Fedora-17 as well). Two irritating issues have emerged that would be 
show stoppers, if incapable of resolution. They are:

1. I choose United Kingdom (English) for the obvious reason - I live 
here - and I appear to be forced to use the French numbering system, 
rather than Imperial.

2.I installed an HP printer via the Printers dialogue and I cannot find 
any way to set paper sizes to A4.

I suspect that both of the above are easily fixable, but lack of 
familiarity with Red Hat since 6.2 means a little help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Peter HB
