Taiwanese Chinese (Hokkien) input method for xcin etc

All I want for Christmas is my reindeer's nose to be 'ang5 sek' and not 'hong2 se4'. Anybody have any ideas how I could customise an input method such as xcin for another language?
It seems easy enough to do in W*@dows, but I'm a bit of a Lidiot and have had no luck so far with Mandrake 9.2.

As a non-chinese speaker, I just had a look to see what's available, you could try ->

Mandrake control centre>Software manager>rpmdrake+ then when the window's open at the top you should have a search facility, in the text box, type "chinese" (no quotes), in the drop down, select in descriptions (as none of the titles is that obvious), check the "all packages" radio button, then hit search.

I'm using 9.1 but it came up with 20 or so different offerings, I couldn't say if any of them are what you need, because I cant tell the difference between the various types quoted in the search results, but it's worth a try.

Erm, don't forget that you will have to put your root password in when asked.
