I don't know if this will work.

My husband bought me a cute Sony Vaio from a Japanese guy at a garage sale. Very cute little thing, but it has Windows ME personal,Japanese version on it. I don't speak Japanese. I have tried lots of ways to change language or get online (then I don't care what language the OS is).... but to know avail.
I thought I might get a version of XP (or XP upgrade) and just install over the Japanese ME Personal.
Any thoughts anyone?
