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.

I'm a Chinese myself. I remember, back in 1997, when I started to use Linux, setup Chinese environment under Slackware is really a nightmare... with CLE, it's just a install.sh away. CLE is really a great project.
(IMHO, for "out of the box" Chinese support, Mandrake is the best. )
hmmm...mandrake seems to be going in the right direction supporting chinese input out of the box, but I am a die-hard slacker.
I tried installpkg libtabe and xcin and systempatch but xcin wouldn't work. Said I need to set the locale of DEFINE_IM...
I will post up the message once I get to my linux box again.
But i was doing this on CURRENT, so maybe that's the problem. NExt time, I will try it on 10.0 and install it by install.sh. I assume that script does everything so no further configuration is necessary?
I installed scim packages from source (available at SCIM (thanks for the link suzhe! ) on my Slacktop (Slackware 10), it was very easy and works very well...SCIM allows you to type any other language in the same document much the same way as windows can...including both Trad and Simplified Chinese, with a good variety of input methods incl. Cangjie, Smart Pinyin and Cantonese...
OK, so i need to install scim and scim-chinese/pinyin.
I just had a brilliant flash. The hardest part of setting up chinese input is dealing with the locales. I am gonna try installing KDE & KDEI, and then startx with chinese. THat should deal with all the locale mumbo jumbo. That just leaves me with compiling and installing scim and scim-chinese. Hopefully it will work. So far i got scim running, but i can't seem to select Chinese input. Will give an update once I've given this a shot.
Um, interesting links, and I'm rather hoping somebody can help me solve one of the few remaining reasons why I need to keep Windows on at least one of my systems....
SCIM ha nihongo ga nainda yo.... daigaku de benkyoushitemasu kara, nihongo de kakanakucha ikenai. And unfortunately, I can't just use romaji in an essay. Anybody have a decent suggestion of where I can go for Japanese input support? Slack/KDE displays the kanji/hirgana/katakana no problem, but I need to type in it, too.
At least I can use character map and scan codes for French, Spanish, and German.
