Not sure how, but on eo fmy outehr user accounts (that was set up by Samba & accessed by FTP) had a form of Chinese selectted for desired language (zh-Ch?).
All the chacahters for sytem settins are in zh Chinese - the best sources list finally came up and I selected a local mirror. I might as well just re-donload the newest release..
