Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

This page should help. It's mostly geared towards Debian users, but you should be able to adjust things for your distro (whatever it is). The secret is basically to set up a utf8 environment in English, then install scim with an appropriate Chinese IME system.
This way, I can switch between Danish and Russian keyboards by pressing both Shift keys. You probably need something similar between English and Chinese. Often, your desktop environment kan do this for you.
Not quite right mjjohansen. While that works for most western languages, CJK have too many characters for a simple keyboard switch. They need a full IME system for inputting characters. I use Japanese all the time, but I never switch keyboard layouts (even though there is a kana keyboard layout available). The IME takes western alphabet combinations and converts them to Japanese characters, so there's generally no need to use a dedicated layout.
It depends a lot on the user though, as some people, especially natives, do like using native language layouts in tandem with IME.
