French & Office

I've got a problem - the French grammar doesn't work in Office2000 (Office97 neither).
I've installed Office2000 (Czech distribution - French proofing tools are not included), then I installed some Canadian French proofing upgrade (available at MS site for free download). Because this didn't work I've installed Office97 (Swiss distribution - French proofing tools included). Now some proofing tools didn't function in Office97, but that isn't a problem because all works under Office2000. Only the French is malfunctioning. Office2000 wanted some *.lex and *.dll files. These are the 'French files' in 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Proof\':
Mshy_pfr.lex
Mshyfr32.dll
Mspfr32.dll
msgr_fr.lex
msgrfr32.dll
mssp_fr.lex
msth_fr.lex
mssp_pfr.lex
msth_fr32.dll
The French spelling in Office2000 is working, but the grammar isn't. Office2000 shows the message 'Nelze spustit kontrolu gramatiky' - translated: 'Cannot run/launch the grammar check' (I don't know the exact-original english message). What's the problem with the French grammar? Is some registry modification needed? Or what can I do? I want the Office2000 (or 97) with Czech, English, German and French proofing tools.

My suspicion is that if you are trying to run both Office 97 and Office 2000 on the same PC, Office will get confused. If this were my problem, I would probably completely uninstall both versions of Office. Then use Eraser to completely erase both versions of Office from the registry.

Eraser 2000:

Eraser 97:

Then, install only Office 2000 and the appropriate language pack(s), or only Office 97 and the appropriate language pack(s).

The Czech language pack is only in Office2000 and the French language pack is only in Office97, so I must somehow combine it.

You must think I am crazy. I thought that WAS the multilanguage pack. Doh!

I thought the multilanguage pack is some special software pack (like Proofing Tools).
OK, but the first link page says that SR-1a is needed. All pages about SR-1a (except the english version of Office2000) are gone. :-(
