I think you cannot change the language in Windows XP. Maybe if you have the Professional version. – Felix Apr 9 '11 at 16:11

MUI is an add-on to the English version of Windows XP Professional and Windows 2000 family of operating systems, and will not install on localized versions of Windows XP/2000 or on Windows XP Home Edition. So no, you can't change a French version of Windows XP to English.
