    [#0005ff]I'm afraid you need to reinstall XP again and select Japanese as the language of choice. I believe it's too big an issue to amend in an existing installaiton but you could look in Control Panel>Regional and Language and see what happens if you try to add a language but I fear Japanese is too copmplex a language with unique and diffficult scripts simply to add to your list of languages.[/#000ff]
  2. it's easy without a fresh install. Go to www.hkksconsulting.com to watch a simple instructional video on how to do it. It's just a few simple easy steps.

  3. Does that not just show how to add Japanese as a language, Ken? I read the OP's requirement as wanting Japanese as the language of the installation
