Any way to change a Japanese 701n to an English version?

I bought a Japanese model of a 701n (not intentionally) from ebay.  It is working properly, but obviously isn't of much use to me since I can't understand the web interface to set options etc.
 
Is there any way to change this to an english model? 
 
Thanks,
Dave

Officially: No.

The OS is embedded into a Flash BIOS ROM.

The ROM must be reprogrammed with an English version of the OS

Update: I was able to convert it to English just by upgrading the OS from the 2.x Japanese version, to a 3.x English version I was able to track down by asking on another forum.  The Bios was already in English.  It is now a Snap Server 2000:).
