Default Changing the default language on xp?

Hello, I thought I would ask you more knowledgeable people out there if there is a way of changing the default language of windows xp. My mother (who lives in Spain) has a Spanish version of win xp and is only just learning Spanish. She would love to change the default language to English.

I could reinstall windows with my English xp disk, but before I resort to that I want to know if there is any other way. Can I use a file from my xp disk? The computer is also a laptop with wireless programmes in that would be lost in the process along with everything else. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks, Coin-op.
