Default setting XP pro to english OS

just bought a IBM lenovo 3000 v100 laptop. i want the OS to be in english, buts it in swedish. here's what i did at first startup....

started it up and choose a few things during the initial setup such as a region, 'sweden' (cause thats where i am), preferred language 'english' (cause i'm canadian) and then preferred keyboard 'swedish' (cause i need those weird swedish letters).

the laptop rebooted and windows XP pro is totally in swedish!!!!
i want it to be in english and english, swedish and finnish are the 3 languages this laptop comes in.

what have i done wrong? can i get the base OS to be in english?
have messed with the regional settings but this only affects the keyboard and so on....

many thanks in advance!!
