I would like to know how to find out what language code page a server is using for the purpose of adding display fields to Active Directory as described in this article:

I have Googled this without any success.  Any help would be appreciated!

I believe the LCID column on this page is what you're after: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-au/goglobal/bb964664.aspx

As for finding out what language your OS is running, go to Control Panel > Region > Administrative tab > the Language for non-Unicode programs section will show you your current system locale.

Match the language here to the LCID column in my link above to find out the code.

e.g. if the system locale is set to English (United States) then the language code would translate to 0409
