Translating Windows

Does anyone know how to edit the files that are on the Windows XP Pro installation disk? I want to translate Windows XP into another language, and to do that, all I've done before is edit the .dll files in Windows\System32 and so on. But I want to have a translated version on a CD so that when I install and start using it, it's already translated. I used Resource Hacker to edit the .dll files, and I can translate the strings and change the pictures (XP logos etc..).

The files on the CD though, are .DL_ files. Does anyone know how I can edit these or some good program for this stuff? ANYTHING.

Thanks in advance. All help is appreciated. :D

Yeah, you will have to unpack the .DL_ files using Expand.exe (found on the install disk in the i386 folder) then edit them, then repack them using the same utility. Expand.exe is a DOS prompt programme, and I suggest you firstly do a "Expand.exe ?" to bring up the help / syntax listing.
Hope this is of some help

How do you exactly go about doing this?

How do you exactly do this with the Expand.exe?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
