    Guys am I right in thinking that you can't change XP's display language (menu's etc) once it's installed. Need to change from English to French but from what I gather you need to purchase a MUI pack to do this or install XP again.

    Also with installing XP is the disk that comes with a PC locked to the language of the country it's bought in if it's an OEM version?

    Umm you should just be able to install this and install it. As far as I understand it you can install additional languages at any time.
