Yes. You can obtain an English version and reload the whole machine..

No. Language packs are available for Vista Ultimate only, all other
versions are stuck with the original language.

In another thread on this topic, this site was mentioned:
http://www.froggie.sk/. At least one poster had reported having
success with this package. I know nothing about it myself.

Unless you have Vista Ultimate or Enterprise, you'd have to
purchase and install an English version of Vista. MUI (Multilingual
User Interface) packs are only available in Windows Vista Ultimate and
Windows Vista Enterprise.
