If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.

I don't think there is a way to change it in the bios. I was also told if the system was sold in Latin America you couln't change the language...I just need to know for sure. I don't want to flash unless it is necessary

I know this is an oldish post, but I have just come across this same problem with an ASUS Eee PC X101CH and thought this might help other people with similar problems.
I tried to install Xubuntu on the ASUS Eee PC and when I tried to change the boot order in the BIOS (which is in US English) the keyboard didn't respond at all to what was printed on the keyboard and the function keys didn't respond at all. I finally figured out which keys were mapped to the arrow keys (so I could navigate the BIOS) but they didn't correspond in any way to US English or to the AZERTY French keyboard on the netbook. It made navigating the BIOS a nightmare, and installing an OS was impossible.
I flashed the BIOS with an update on the ASUS site, which worked fine, but the keyboard issue was not solved.
The solution was to take the netbook apart, remove the CMOS battery and restart the netbook. The BIOS and the keyboard responded exactly as a US English keyboard would. I reseated the battery and was able to navigate the BIOS using the arrow keys, setting the time and other options as required.
There is no way in the majority of, especially older, BIOSes to set the region or language. The BIOS language is usually set in stone by the computer manufacturer.
I hope this helps others who find themselves in the same boat. Xubuntu is now installed on the ASUS X101CH and all is well with the world
