I think you can use Microsoft's Multilingual User Interface (MUI) Pack.  This page has several languages.  I'm also putting in some other MS links that might be helpful.

There are also updates for it so make sure you install those as well.

You have to have windows XP professional in order to use them.
and the operating system has to already be in english.
Your solution seems to be to get an english windows xp cd and reinstall the operating system and use  your current licence key.

If you are using Windows xp pro.  You could try installing the mui pack http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=D3F8F6AB-84F1-4095-8709-DF509B1BEE22&displaylang=en
Installing that on a Greek machine should give you access to English.  
Another option might be to get a "windows xp" English disk and see if it lets you do a "repair install" not a complete new install.  A repair install would leave files and settings intact.  I do not know if that would work, but it is just a suggestion. Here are instructions for doing a repair install.

I object to the question deletion. stevthym is requesting deletion for "Not Getting Complete Answer" but he has not responded to expert comment since 9/3/10 indicating if it solved his problem or if he needed more information.

Points should be rewarded or stevthym should request more information if he feels the answer is not complete.
