Appending this bootoptions should work:  locale=fr_FR.UTF-8 keyb=fr
Btw. for a french keyboard layout there is still lxkeymap avaiable that
allows you to switch your keymap after booting. (see the lxkeymap thread)
Language can be also configured and switched after booting with the
language setup tool in preferences.
