Debian install hangs at "Language selection"

When I try to install Debian 3.0 from the cd it hangs at the "Language selection" part of the settup.

I suspect that the media could be currupted, but thought if I could get passed this stage it may continue ok...unlikely I know but's worth a crack

Can I bypass this part of the settup by using some type of command that set's the install to "en" by default??

In fact is thier a list of commands I can use at the "boot:" prompt to set certain conditions for the type etc???
