Mandriva 2007 free mini. Locale prob.

Hello, I'm really new in the world of linux. I just got a new old computer and decided to install linux instead of windows. I got the mandriva 2007 free mini cd. I format the computer and install the os. Everything went really smooth and fast. After installing. I reboot the computer where i have to type my login and password in kernel. after entering my login and password i got this error.

'locale: cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: no such file or directory
locale: cannot set LC_MESSAGES to default locale: no such file or directory
locale: cannot set LC_ALL to default locale: no such file or directory
[root@localhost ~]#'

So now i have no idea what to do. I typed locale and all the LC's have the same "en_US.UTF-8" language on except for the LC_ALL that is empty.

Any help would be great.

PS: My comp is a dell, pentium 4 1.8 ghz, 516 ram, mandriva detected an ATI Radeon as a video card, I dont know really if that is the actual card, but it works fine.
