To change the system language just go to System Prefrences>International and you can select a language from there.
As for system tuneup Mac OS usually takes care of that stuff automatically although there are programs like Cocktail and Onyx which allow you to manually execute maitnance scripts and optimize the disks.
Congratulations on you new iBook.

If you switch between languages a lot I'd also recommend customising the Input Menu (System Preferences > International > Input Menu) so you can switch between the two with ease.

I use Yasu as a system utility

like others it will repair permissions, which should be done from time to time and will help keep things happy on your new Mac. It can also be done using the 'Disc Utility' in the 'Utilities' folder.

I always repair permissions after major software installs and OS updates.

No matter what happens, don't go all batty and get Norton [Anything] or Symantec [Whatever] for your Mac. It's nothing but bad juju.
