Well, in that question I meant this:  Your system had defaulted to
Afrikaans (it had set /something/ before you had done so).  Had you
changed that setting, and did it make any noticeable difference.?

I'm not sure, but changing that setting might require a log out and back
in again.  I think my default was en-US, though I can't remember.  I set
my locale on the GDM screen as I was logging in.  I cannot remember any
locale setting during the installation.  Later, I set the system default
to en-AU (Gnome system administration preference control for Language),
so that anyone else who logged in would start with the (usual) right
default, so they wouldn't have to change anything.
