Question Can I input in Japanese, but keep English menus?

I have Fedora Core 1 installed on my PC and I included Japanese during the installation. If I sign into Gnome with Japanese selected as my language, I can input Japanese text easily by pressing {shift}+{space}. If I log in under English, I can't use that shortcut.

Using English, I added Keyboard Layout Switcher to the panel. If I use this to switch to Japanese layout, I still get English characters, but the keyboard is mapped to the Japanese style (ie. punctuation marks are in different places than it would be on a US keyboard layout).

Does anyone know how I could get the same Japanese text input function as if I loaded Gnome with Japanese, but using English as the language?

Chii-chan, thank you very much for you help. I'm not sure why your last post didn't show up when searched the forum, but it worked beautifully for me.

In Fedora, never tried.
For Mandrake I use this excellet guide

May be that can help. The problem is that Fedora uses Gnome, while mandrake works with KDE
