positive earthed battery???

Hello there..

Just bought a 1994 Laguna, but the battery is wired positive earth??
I dont know why it is like this, I think the person who had it before me must of done it..but the problem is there is no radio in the car, and i need a radio in my car!!

Would i be ok to put any radio inside it or will this blow all the electrics??
I went to an auto electrician today and he said i could put any radio in and it would be fine, but im not sure..i heard u need to either:

a) buy a polarity inverter
b) buy a positive earthed radio: or
c) change the car from positive earth to negative earth

Any help much appreciated
