[rodd localhost ~]$ locale
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=
[rodd localhost ~]$ 

So, let me get this straight.  All of this was set because I said I
wanted my computer to speak English (USA)?

If this is the case, then anaconda really needs a little more smarts
than making the assumption that because I choose to use a language I
must live where that language is spoken.  Maybe anaconda needs to ask a
for more questions about my location before setting my locale?
