Hi,

I am currently have a laptop with Windows XP on it. The language, is English, but I am looking to change it to Swiss (German). I am looking to change not just the available dictionaries, and the arrangement of keyboard characters. I want things like the start button to change to the Swiss (Ger) version of the word Start. My Computer, My Documents, Control Panel - they should all be Swiss (Ger) words.

Can someone link me to the correct item I need to download and give me some brief instructions (or priovide a link to instructions) on what I need to do.

Thanks,
