    How to change the laguage for Win XP to English? I have a Chinese XP at the moment but really need the English XP. I have attempted to change the language in control panel but only Chinese language is available.
    I have Winxp CD but when installing it, it said that the language being used uncompatible with the language already installed and the option to upgrade this language is unavailable.
    Does anyone know how to get English-language WinXP in this situation?
