problem in changing the language shortcut

hi all,
I've windows xp installed in a laptop I need dual languages english and arabic in my work so I installed them
but when I try to change the keyboard layout from english to arabic  like that:
       arabic : alt-right-shift
       english:alt-left-shift
but it does not work  

so I defined another shortcut  for that :
          arabic : alt-shift-0
          english:alt-shift-1

but it's difficult
can you please help me to get the first shortcut combination work
best regards
HG

Start>Control Panel>Regional and Language Settings>Langauges>Details>Key Settings
select Switch between input languages and click Change Key Sequences
tick Switch between keyboard layouts and set it to Left Alt+Shift
now you should be able to switch between arabic and english keyboard layouts using Left Alt+Shift keys

don't define any shortcut key separately for Arabic and English keyboard layouts, they should be set to none in order to make the Left Alt+Shift work.
