I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1033 is the language id code for English.  The Microsoft Installer has the capability to include modules on an installation CD which are only used by certain languages.  That way a single CD can support multiple languages.

It's all explained well in this powerpoint file:
