How do I change language and keyboard layout for Yo0 Linux?

I was hunting for a small Linux distribution and found Yo0 Linux for Yugoslavian people. It said that there's plenty of English documentation available for it. How do I change its Yugoslavian output to English? Also, how do I change the keyboard layout to something more familiar, say the US 104 key layout?

until you get a better reply and I have not bothered to d/l your distro consider this

/etc/rc.d/rc.sysconfig is the likely boot init script that calls /etc/sysconfig/console stuff and in /etc/sysconfig you are likely to have files i18n and keyboard.

2) assuming you make backups and or know how to use a live cd...change those defaults to kb for us and change your LOCALE settings......but because I have been aware that they may be over-ridden by a window manager or environment like kde or gnome so you may also need to check /etc/X11/xorg.conf or xf86free.conf as well.

That would certainly help me know where to look. I'm nowhere being good at Linux, so a lot of this simple stuff I need help on. If it had a window manager, this would probably be fairly easy. It's a 2-disk "portable" Linux on floppies, and does not have a window manager. It would probably be worth your time to experiment with it and see what it has. The third disk may have a window manager. Dunno yet.
