Hi.
I'm trying to use XP Pro SP2 with English as first language and Korean as second with limited success
I've done all the MS suggested things to do with keybd layouts, downloaded the Korean IME, adjusted IE & OE according to the instructions, setup Office 2003 & the language bar according to instructions.

Can't seem to type anything in Korean though, only MSN Messenger seems to work properly in Korean
Google still types in English and Office and OE will only type English.

Has anybody managed to get 2 Languages working properly?
Am I missing something?
Any good reference sites?

Thanks

Thanks johnboy
I'd already been through the MS article
I'll read thru the other one, I may pick something up I've missed
Cheers

when the lanuage bar is active there will be a blue e down by the clock click on that to to change your lanuage Sometimes it does take some fiddling

Yeah I got the language bar running but changing the languages makes no difference
I must have missed something and will go over the whole deal again tonight
Thanks
