    It's all Chinese to me....!

    I have to install Windows XP on to a laptop - but in Chinese (Mandarin, I think). I am right in thinking that the only way to do this is via a version of XP produced for the Chinese market?

    Yes you need a Chinese language edition to do this properly.

    What about the Windows XP Pro MultiLingual version of Windows? See here for an example.

    I've just checked on our MS licencing site (we have software assurance and a schools agreement) and it's there for download.
