Help with changing Windows Language from French to English?


A friend of mine was given a laptop by her workplace for free (an older pentium II) with Windows 98 SE loaded and it is in French. French is her first language, but she wants Windows to be in English instead of French.

Is there a way to switch the language preference without having to re-install Windows?
