Hi! I'm not really an expert, but I used to need Japanese input too and I found that to write Japanese you need to install the Scim package and some packages like Anthy or Uim. They should all be Mandriva CDs, so you should be able to install them easily... I'm sorry I can't be more precise, I installed those quite a long time ago... Hope I helped. ^_^
