I would assume that the Start button is not named as "START", instead it is shown in another language ?

Did you install windows using a different language CD ? Maybe French ?

There are tweaks to change the Start button - but this won't affect the rest of the Windows install.

It's my understanding that you can only get this by buying the language version that you want.

I was doing a bit of looking around on the Microdsoft KB and found this little thing that might help, then it might not. From what I can find I do not think there is anything other than the English version of SP2 for Win XP but do a read on this it might help you in a way.

An update is available for Language Interface Packs and Multilingual User Interfaces to improve support for Windows XP Service Pack 2
