The rpms there are for Cooker (development version). ;) Do you plan to
upgrade to 10.1? SCIM is included in it as the default IM for Chinese,
Hangul, Japanese (with UIM) and Amharic, and LocaleDrake can configure IM
settings in ~/.i18n for you. :) Besides, updates support for Mandrake 9.1
seems to have expired on the 25th September...

SCIM should work with it_IT.UTF-8 since you added it
to /usr/local/etc/scim/global. As Kitae said, Smart Pinyin is for simplified
Chinese, but you can get traditional Chinese characters using '中' or '繁'.
However, if LC_CTYPE is set to zh_CN (or zh_CN.GB2312), they don't appear in
the candidate window in Qt applications. For example, 學(xue).
Maybe it's not what you were asking, bug I don't know how to use various
Chinese input methods in scim-tables either... Sorry I can't be of more
