Default Win XP French to English?

Hi all,

Just installed XP on my new comp but all I had was the "French" installation disc (lost the english one somewhere). I figured I would just click on the language bar when it started and presto change-o over to english, but it's not working! I can se "anglias (canada)" and click on it, but nothing happens, just stays on french. Do I have to download a winxp lang pack or something?

Tried looking on MS.com but can't find anything :(

Any ideas apprecaited.

You installed French, not English.

Language packs nor keyboard language nor regional settings are going to change that.

If you want English, you need the English disc.
