Unhappy Language packs for Fedora 4

Hi. I installed FC4 about two weeks ago and things have been going swimmingly well since. However, I noticed that the default language was set to English USA which is a bit of a pain as I had wanted English Australia (US date formats are irritating for me).

How do I download or install the Australian language pack as the language alteration screen only gives USA as an option for language. No other language packs were installed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The default language for what, bash?

Or for KDE ? or perhaps OpenOffice ??

I don't understand where the pain is

It is the language that the base system relies on. I am running a Gnome desktop and the default language in that desktop is USA English, not Great Britain (which is Australia's version. This makes the dates wrong as well as some spelling.

It is irritating but not critical.
