Changing the language interface in Vista

  poppykins1 10:09 01 Nov 2007

I live in Spain and have just bought a new PC with Windows Vista. Naturally, the basic language of the machine is Spanish which I do not speak too well right now.
I have changed the lanuage of the keyboard and some of the files come up with English titles, but the OS is still Spanish. Can I change the entire system to English (as my husband has been able to do with his new Mac)?
Also, I would like to partition the HD to be able to load Windows XP Professional, but all instructions are in Spanish. I have the Missing Manual book, but what I read there doesn't appear to happen on my computer! Do I need extra software for this operation? (I am a novice in all this!!) Many thanks to ANYONE who can advise me!

I have seen something about language support, but it's in my Vista Inside Out book at home. If you can wait I will have a look this evening. O puede aprender espanol. No es muy dificil.

Thank you very much Ventanas for your help. It will take me a while to work it out, but I am most grateful.
