    This is a pretty stupid question, but is it possible to download the East Asian language set for XP? For whatever reason the XP disk that came with my PC doesn't have it, and M$ is no help.

    does this help?

    Start button > Control Panel > Regional and languages options > Languages > click install East Asian Option.

    Thats what I was asking. It says insert XP cd. My PC didn't come with an actual XP cd, just a boot disk with XP on it. And it doesn't have the language pack.

    You will need the Windows i386 directory from the Windows XP disc. If you have a boot disc, it should contain that directory. Point the installer to that directory and then select the file that it's asking for. It might ask you for an additional file after that one, possibly.

    If you don't have the i386 directory on your boot disc, you will need to consult the infinite wisdom of the allmighty bittorrent.

    Thank you to all who responded. My disc did not contain the language folder, so I had to resort to "other means" to get it. Everything works now, thanks again.
