Hi Pk

Good to hear of the work you're doing!

A DVD drive can read a CD with no problems. So if you buy CDs, you can 
burn the 625MB ISO and it will still work in a DVD drive. I'm pretty 
sure that all DVD drives can read CDs, but someone will no doubt correct 
me if I'm wrong :-)

I've never changed the language during a Debian install, so can't help 
there. Sorry!
