Language Pack for a Chinese Server 2008 R2 Box

I was very excited to discover that Server 2008's entire operating system's language can be switched by downloading a Microsoft MUI (Multilingual User Interface) pack.

This is incredibly helpful as my company has recently began tackling the China markets.  I tested a Chinese MUI on a local english server and it works like a champ.   However, I'm attempting to perform the opposite switch at the China site.  I cannot speak Chinese, however, I've become pretty good at perusing through the China OS via pictures and some guessing.  

What I've attempted was downloading the en-us (english) MUI and transferred it to the China server.  When walking through the installation of the language pack, it throws up a message telling me the language pack is not compatible (as told by a china employee).  I was sure to download the x86 MUI as that server is 32bit. I'll go ahead and try a 64bit version of the MUI and see if that works for some reason.

Anyone else ever attempt such a thing?  =)
