In need of xkb / kxkb help!

hi all, I'm having some problems with xkb / kxkb and Japanese.

Ok, the one thing I've gotten working is that when the kxkb icon says JP i set it so i can press "left alt + left shift" and it let's me type Katakana (and i believe it's missing a few keys) and I cannot for the life of me find how to type in Hiragana! I've searched the web and help files and am not making any progress.

I'm new to Japanese, and i'm new to xkb in general and this has me completly stumped. If someone could at least let me know what "compose" mode is and what "3rd level" is and how to use them properly i'd be very greatfull!

for some background info, i'm running a HD install of Knoppix 3.6 and using an IBM Rapid Access II keyboard (have that set up properly in kxkb at least).

alternatly, if anyone has info on other programs like kinput2 or any other romanji -> hiragana / katakana that might be easier, i'm listening, i just want to type in hiragana somehow.

thanks for the help
