I have a notebook computer which has Japanese keyboard with Win98 Japanese version. Now I installed an English version Win2000. How to setup or modify so the keyboard still be valid for English version Win2000?

Yes, there is an option of Keyboard layout/IME. However, only one ("Japanese") can be selected. Actually, different PC company, such as Sony, Toshiba, and Sharp etc, has different key arrangement, hence I think the solely solution is to get something from WIN98(Jpn) and installed it to Win2000(Eng). May be this is the only way, but I don't know how??

So have you already gone to control panel | regional options | general tab - then to advanced?
Which other software do you use - Office 2000?
And what version of Japanese are you wanting for keyboard layout?

Only above helps a lot. I will try at home later.

Notethat, we can input non-English language without any problem. Now problem is that, in Japan, there are different keyboards for the PC from different company! That is a problem!

No progress. From www.freeware.com or download.com you can find some software which can do such things, it can change keyboard input according to layout, but it can be used only a couple months.
