Default regional settings on windows 2000

When I installed my machine I choose Dutch (Belgium) as the default regional settings.
I have to change it now to English (US), but can't find how to make it the default for new users.

When a new users logs onto the system, he automatically gets the Dutch (Belgium) regional settings instead of the English (US) regional settings.

Can someone tell me how I change the default regional settings?

Thx in advance!
