Changing the Windows Language?

I have a friend in France who wants to find a way to change the language on the computer he is using from French to English ( :p ).

Where would one do that in Windows XP?

If you're talking about window menus and dialogues and that stuff then go to control panel, regional and laguage settings > languages, and then select the language from the bottom.

I'm not entirely sure if the text in the start menu will change with it or not.

There are many such settings, and no changing this setting will not cause the start menu items to change...

Anyhow, taking Japanese, so have things configured for dual language support in both English and Japanese... Hadn't changed that option in particular, but had changed most others. Things pretty much appear in English. I tried changing the above mentioned for kicks and giggles (though I didn't reboot, and it didn't request one for that setting). It changed the display on the clock, but not on the start menu or in already installed software...
