See info pages on ispell.

Ispell replacements

Current favorites appear to be aspell and hunspell.

Point to the ispell replacement:

(setq-default ispell-program-name "hunspell")

You might already have the required dictionary files in your browser or openoffice directory tree.

Windows XP difficulties

Links to precompiled binaries are dead at time of writing.

I got RPMs from openSUSE, but hunspell.exe aborted after not finding a dll file. After that dll was added, another dll was not found. I gave up after several iterations. This was with mingw32-hunspell-1.3.2-1.98.noarch.rpm and later mingw32-hunspell-1.3.2-1.99.noarch.rpm (and associated lang and tools RPMs).
