looking for english language pack for a non english windows xp

Hi

i have this situation
a friend of mine bought a laptop in Mexico, in Spanish of course.
since he doesnt speak the language, he'd like to switch to a "more
familiar language" e.g. english.
however in the mean time, he's accumulated too much on the machine, so
fresh installation is out of the question.
he's running home addition and i believe that this version doesnt
support MUI, so i am trying first to upgrade it to a spanish version
of xp pro and after that to install MUI, however, i couldnt find an
english MUI.

any help?

Izzy

Hi,

as far as I know, MUI is only supported on the XP Enterprise version, not on
XP Professional.

He needs to purchase a full version of XP in English. It can be set up as
a dual boot with the current version or a clean install. You cannot upgrade
from one language version to another. Unfortunately the MUI is not
available for home users.
