nearly impossible because when i try to install the chinese character come
out all weird and crazy. also when i right click on chinese files that i have
and instead of having a proper filename, they're names come out all weird
(some are just an underlines or blanks, followed by readable english and
numerical characters...) i no they are english cuz i check on my other
computer tha has chinese installed (forgot how i did it...) can anyone plz
help and is there a patch i can find on msn...?
