Hey... I hope this is the correct subforum =)

I am having a problem installing language support.

I go to the control panel, regional language options, and check the box
for the language support I need, then Windows prompts for the Windows XP
CD to copy the necesssary files, just like the instructions go.

The problem is, I do not have the CD. This computer was built for me by
a local computer firm. They did not give me the XP CD, even after I
asked several times. (This is a legit copy, though)

Anyhow, is there any way I can download the support online (I remember
you could do this on 98...), or otherwise bypass this problem?

Any help will be appriciated. :confused:

You NEED the CD. The Better Business Bureau phone number should be in
the phone book.

search for "/i386" folder within your HD.

If you could find it, you can use that folder to install IME.

Good Luck!
