Multiple language problems

Hi

I have a base system that has English(US), English(Canada), French(Canada) installed on it, with English(US) the default.

I then run sysprep on it because I am going to be deploying this base image to many different pc's. After the sysprep procedure is done I lose English(Canada), French(Canada).

Is there anyway I can fix this. I really need the other 2 languages
