During Setup, you cannot change the keyboard layout/IME settings to any other language unless the "Input language" selected is the default language.
This behavior only occurs if you try to gain access to the keyboard layout/IME setting when you customize locale settings during Setup.
This behavior occurs because the keyboard layout/IME settings are hard coded in the language of the country in which the Windows 2000 CD was purchased.
To resolve this problem:
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Windows 2000.
When you use Multilingual User interface (MUI) support, Windows 2000 uses the Master Language as it's default. This default setting exists so the administrator can add or remove MUI files in his/her native language.
