that was big...I think that was what I needed (the .xinputrc symbolic
link in my $HOME) because once I created that and logged out and logged
back in, I was able to type Chinese and I got rid of the KDE keyboard
switcher thinking it blocked some things like the up/down arrows and
delete keys but maybe it is scim doing that.

The only thing I haven't been able to figure out is how to 'page'
through the various word choices from scim/pinyin from the keyboard so I
don't have to grab the mouse with each word I enter if the word I want
happens not to be on the first 'page' of choices.

As for multi-language support at installation time...it never occurred
to me that I would be interested in multi-language setup...I am an
American  ;-)  This is a new thing for me and while I don't need to
learn Chinese, it intrigues me (unless Red Hat would want to offer me a
job in Beijing ;-). Copy/paste can only get me so far. 

Thanks

Craig
