during this summer I was over in asia and bought an Asus M2 series notebook, but the problem is, that the notebook's interface, menus, etc... are in Chinese. I've looked up how to change the language from Chinese to English on microsoft.com, but the way they show it is through Windows XP MUI, which only works on professional edition, I am running on Windows XP home edition.

Can anyone give me step by step instructions on how to change my OS language to English? Thanks!

As you've discovered, it can only been done on XP Pro, by adding the MUI pack. However, from what I can gather even that requires an English version of XP Pro - the MUI pack can't be added to a non-English version of XP Pro (that's my understanding of it anyway.

The purpose of the MUI add-on is to change the OS language from English to something else.
So even if your Chinese version was XP Pro, the MUI pack would be no use to you.

You only option therfore is to buy an English retail version of XP.
