set language in sql server 2005

The default language of my sql server 2005 is us_english
I want to change it to french "definitively" I mean for all coming sessions
I know how to do in a stored procedure (set language french)  but I want to do it permanently so not having to issue the command in concerned stored procedure
And the same for the dateformat (set dateformat ymd)

Hi,

You may want to check the solution hiven here http://www.sqlteam.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=62891 

Read the last posts with the registry change. Be very very careful and do backups before you change everything.

the simple stuff

registry tip (dd/mm/yyyy however) - easier to read, same author as above I think you will need to get the right values for your locale

way harder stuff, but if you have many instances this might be useful
