Installation of English Office programs on computer with non-English Windows XP

Recommend you ask the question in one of the Office newsgroups on the
Microsoft news server. One problem with Outlook 97 installs on modern
systems (after all OL97 is a little "long in the tooth" nowadays) is that it
will "break" keys in the registry relating to the default mail program.
Would recommend you not install Outlook 97 on an updated (XP) system, but
that's your choice.

1. Using english and non-English Excel commands simultaneously in a non-English installation

2. Non-English laptop with Windows XP to English Vista OK???

I just bought a Sony laptop (it says on the botton that the model is
PCG-6NFP) with already installed Windows XP; however, I bought this in Korea
because I needed the keyboard to be in Korean (although I'm sure there was an
easier way to have this other than buying the laptop in Korea). I am
completely clueless about computers, so everything in windows in Korean is
really time-consuming. After reading other people's posts, I realize that I
will have to do a "clean install" after buying an English version of Windows
XP.

My questions are:

1) would there be a problem to change from my non-English Windows XP to
English Vista?

2) since my computer initially came with Windows XP, will it be slowed down
at all if I install Vista?

3) (for future reference): could I have bought my laptop in the US and been
able to have it so that I could have access to Korean websites/programs and
my keyboard in Korean without necessarily buying a for-the-Korean-market
laptop?

Thank you.
