Set different default keyboard setting in Windows XP

By ylemartret ·
I installed windows XP in English with English regionnal setting, EN keyboard. I know need to set the default keyboad as French. I can set it for each user but can not find the way to set every new user to get a French Keyboard.
It seems i need to modify the Ntuser.dat for all users profile.
Can anyone please help me to do this?
