How do I get Japanese fonts working

I'm running on Mandrake 8.2
We have disabled the font server and are loading fonts through X, this is the entry from the XF86Config-4 file:

Section "Files"

RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Mandrake 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

# xfs FontPath "unix/:-1"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi:unscaled"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/mdk:unscaled"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/default/Type1"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/encodings/large"

I added the last one hoping to get the japanese fonts working, but they are not working outside the font server. Any Ideas?

Come on, someone has to know this. I've hit a ton of forums and I would think this would be an easy question for someone...

thanks people, batting 0/2 with these forums being helpful. Figured it out, had the wrong font path for the characters.
