Sarge was start of UTF-8 support.  There may be some rogh edges.  Why
bother installing oldstable?  Why not use lenny=stable?

?? is this typo? or just sloppy typing?
 ja_JP.utf-8  (There is no ja_JA locale, it should be JP there)
Framebuffer terminals are only widely used as installer screen only.  So
there may be some bugs.  Unless you want serious challenge, I suggest
you to use X.

French:  http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-reference/ch07.fr.html
English: http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-reference/ch07.en.html

These documents should give fair starting point.
