You cannot change the language of the OS. Your only option is to buy an
English version of XP and install it, either as a clean install or to a dual
boot setup.

Greetings --

You cannot upgrade or convert from one language version of the OS
to another, so you'll have to purchase and use the full version of
English WinXP to perform a clean installation.
