You have to be booted to OS X in order to switch languages. Use your original install DVD to boot the machine, and when it asks for the language to select for the install, select English. But instead of reinstalling OS X, just cancel your way out and reboot. Let's see if that gets you back to English.

If it doesn't, boot the machine again with your install DVD and change the password from the top menu. See if you can get back in with the new password.
