Hi, I am giving my old pc to a friend who is French and he would like to swap the keyboard for a french one (not qwerty). Has anyone out there had experience in switching to a continental keyboard? Is it an easy thing to do? Any help gratefully received. Thanks.

If it's XP, your friend needs to go to the Control Panel - Regional Settings. In there they can set up for any keyboard. In addition they can change the Time Zone, Currency Symbol and similar regional differences.

Of course the OS will still be in English - to get it into French they will need to buy a French version.
