Hello... I am having some difficult time installing east asian
language to have language bar.. recently I just bought a new HP
pavilion with windows xp with media center edition. Installed office
2003 (sttudent and teacher edition). I knew that there are many foreign
languages to be able to use with this software...(supposedly?) and I
tried to install japanese and korean languages so I could use writing
in three languages. However, there were no luck at all... Due to not
being able to install it myself, I contacted microsoft.... and I was
informed by Microsoft tech that they could not do anything to help me
with this problem and only thing it can help me is that I need to buy
some sort of software to use east asian languages which is supposedly
compatible with office 2002. I have been researching and found some
ways to be able to use foreign languages along with English.. I am
pretty much stuck and don't know what to do... so here is what I did
for the last six hours repeadly fwithout success ollowing some of the
websites' directions...( including the past topic with similar problem
described and I followed the steps they were discussing... and no luck
with me...)
I went to the control panel, then, regional and language option
then, went under language and installed files for east asian language,
then,same option -> [Languages] tab -> click [Details..]
then, Click [Add..] button and select your language
rebooted computer everytime I added...
supposedly you are able to see the language bar on the screen but it
never happened....
tried so many times but no success....
so my questions for you are
1) how true is it that I need to purchase the another microsoft
software to install in order to use different languages?
2) if I don't need to purchase it, what is my options after I tried the
directions from help from my own windows and other websites?

I love internet but not a big fan of dealing with inside of
computer.... why is it so confusing????
I hope I can put this behind me.. :)
and Thank U for reading and replying.... early thank you to all...
