    is it possible to have two different language OS's on the same comp, like having english XP home edition and lets say japanese XP home? i know that i can have two different os's, but i've only seen stuff that involve different OS types, like XP and 98, etc. is it the same as that? help much appreciated :bowdown::bowdown::bowdown:

    You can have ONE OS then just install japanese and just turn it on and off :/

    Yes, you can. Once you install your second OS, it will show up on the boot loader, I would probably suggest making a new partition for that second OS though.

    how would u turn the language on/off?

    and if i wanted to install the files for the second language and keep it separate, would i need to install the files to another directory? kind of a retorical question but i wanna make sure i dont wipe my files out because of this

    My Computer > Controll Panel > Regional Languages > Advance. When you install another Language windows puts a little icon by the clock and when you click on it, it will let you select Languages you have installed.
