You're so smart to check this out ahead of time! You can change the language
*only* if you buy Vista Ultimate (I'm not sure about Enterprise, but this
wouldn't affect you anyway). If you purchase Vista Home Premium, which is
usually the right choice for a home user, you should purchase it with the
language you want. Otherwise you'll need to buy a whole new retail version
of Vista English and do a clean install of Windows.
