You can not change the language of Windows XP.
If you want Windows XP in English, you need to buy Windows XP in English.

Go to "Regional and Language Options" in Control Panel
Click Language tab
Near the bottom is there "Language used in menus and dialogs"
If not you can not change the language.
If so, you have the Multilingual User Interface installed and you can select
English from the dropdown.

If you can not read the language to navigate, compare with a computer
running in English, the path is the same.
