January 23rd, 2009, 08:27 AM
hey, my mom gave me a handed down pc. which is a 900 Mhz PIII. It has 128 MB of ram, 40 GB of harddrive space. (I am planning to upgrade the ram btw.) Anyone have any spares PC133 of RAM sticks? lol

anyways, I already have a Ubuntu netbook, so i don't want it. Its for my mom. I wanted to format Windows ME, and install a fresh Ubuntu OS on it.

The only problem is that my mom reads Traditional Characters of Chinese.

Is there a way to install the Chinese language on the OS, and switch back to the US version of Ubuntu?

btw, where do i have the traditional characters of Chinese?
