Floppy installation currently does not support installing in other 
languages than English.
However, I agree with you that the current installation using floppies is 
- you do get the languagechooser dialog allowing you to select other
  languages than English
- if you do, the next dialog for country selection will show country codes
  instead of country names
- after additional modules have been loaded from drivers floppy and CD,
  there is a very strange mixture of languages:
  - some dialogs will show a translated title and untranslated contents
  - some menu choices in the main menu are translated (those loaded from
    the cd-drivers floppy and the CD), while others are not (those loaded
    from the root floppy)

However, I can not confirm that earlier choices are "lost" after the 
installer loads additional modules from CD.

AFAIK DMA is enabled by default. See /proc/ide/hdX/settings (where hdX is 
your hard disk).
