I used Macpup_foxy3's internal package installer to install it. i don't know where it installed it to. pls guide me. Thanks.
Here's something else i stumbled unto while playing around. i was looking for how to install Chinese fonts and have them display correctly, i decided to copy some unicode fonts from my windows vista font folder. i copied  simhei.ttf,  ukai_0.ttf (a.k.a. AR PL ZenKai Uni)  lingoes.ttf (fonts  and  i downloaded off the net) from windows, via USB to /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF in Macpup_foxy3 linux (maybe it's the same path for other linux distros) and VOILA! i all documents bearing chinese fonts displayed very well. i also open some .doc files and it displayed (although some weren't displaying, less than 10% missing fonts). in firefox, went to chinese websites and the fonts all displayed perfectly (before i couldn't show chinese fonts).
I'm sure this is not new but in case anybody has problem displaying asian fonts, this is very helpful. just try copying asian fonts from windows or just download them off the net (esp. true-type fonts - .ttf) into your linux font folder. close all folders and browser and reopen/restart.
Now my main problem: HOW TO INPUT CHINESE CHARACTERS? pls help.

What did you select for "Country setup" when you installed Mac Puppy?
I just booted "Puppy Linux", and in "Puppy Setup" you can change the "Country Settings", which includes "Choose keyboard layout for your country". Have a look around in the menus and see if you can find something similar.
i later solved the problem on how to input chinese characters. But it's not wise to leave without telling how just in case another person runs into the same chinese IME problem. i found the answer here:
