Re: Hebrew in XP home edition

I tried this method (I want to install Arabic lang. support), and when I went
to Control Panel/Regional and Language Support, it asked me to insert a WinXP
Pro disc to install the needed files. Unfortunately, my Averatec doesn't
supply a Windows XP Pro disc--only a recovery disc, which is a photo image of
the factory install. And, of course, that install didn't include Arabic
support. Any ideas as to where I might find these files (apart from
borrowing somebody's XP Pro disc)? Thanks in advance.
