Epidemic From Brazil, Based on Debian, Install Advice?

Hi, could someone advise me on how to install Epidemic from Brazil. I do not comprehend the language or know how to translate the page, find the English version.

Also I will want to dual boot, partitioning drives complexity, please tell me how if you know. Thanks.

From I found this:
To make English the default boot option in Epidemic LiveDVD

$ cd /path/to/epidemic/iso/file
# mkdir old new
# mount -o loop -t iso9660 epidemic-3.1-b2-1-i686.iso old
# cp -a old/* new
# umount old     
# rm -r old      
# kwrite new/boot/grub/grub.cfg
Swap the positions of the texts blocks

menuentry "Epidemic [B R]" {
linux /boot/vmlinuz locale=pt_BR quiet splash fastboot
initrd /boot/initrd.img

menuentry "Epidemic [US]" {
linux /boot/vmlinuz locale=en_US quiet splash fastboot
initrd /boot/initrd.img

menuentry "Epidemic [US]" {
linux /boot/vmlinuz locale=en_US quiet splash fastboot
initrd /boot/initrd.img

menuentry "Epidemic [B R]" {
linux /boot/vmlinuz locale=pt_BR quiet splash fastboot
initrd /boot/initrd.img

# genisoimage -R -V "Epidemic" -b boot/grub/grub_eltorito  -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -o epidemic-us-3.1-b2-1-i686.iso new
# rm -rf new
The live cd has the option at boot. When you install to hard-drive just hit the save changes button in the installer and it will install using English as default. At least it worked for me on 2 computers. Same results right? just easier.
