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 
help. :(
