rookie questions

I've just installed Red Hat 8 on about 10 clients at an ESL school. A few problems have come up that I haven't found answers for, hence the post.

Given that the school has numerous Japanese, Chinese and Korean students, the ability to send email using these character sets is pretty important. I've yet to determine how I can allow for these to be supported.
Will I need to re-install the operating system and allow for these character sets to be supported, or can I add this support now that the systems are up and running?
For some reason, I cannot run CD's. I have enabled all of the CD packages but all i get is the message:
" Nautilus has no viewer cabable of displaying /mnt/cd/g3d32.exe " for example.\

Any insight or links is greatly appreciated.

You should be able to install packages for such languages without having to do any re-installing.
You cant run exe files (without a windows emulator).

The packages you need to install are: those in i18n in their names (translations), locales* and fonts. Of yourse, choose only packages with right language codes (packages for all supported languages are included).
