all language support in X

hi. so, i switched from xp to slackware 10.2 + freerock gnome about a month ago. i have everything configured just right, but there's one thing that i miss about xp / os x:

support for different languages built in. i read hebrew, so i installed the fonts for that in firefox, and that works okay enough. but i like how in xp and os x most (common) languages display correctly out of the box. it doesn't matter to me that i can't read japanese -- i'd like to see japanese (for example) on japanese websites, rather than the ugly, gibberish blocks that i'm getting now.

i have both xp and office 2003, so getting the right ttfs is not a problem. is there a way to set this up that is not painstaking?
