Hi All

their winxp machine with english language.

I beleive their version of xp is Greek ... not being able to read Greek I
couldnt work it out lol .

How do I install English Language

You can not change the language of Windows XP.
If your friend wants Windows XP in English your friend needs to buy
Windows XP in English.

That is a similar procedure to an upgrade and you can not upgrade from
one language to another.
You can try, but I am pretty sure it will not work.
