Well, the point is that I need to be able to LaTeX a Chinese sample
text first on my machine before doing anything else.
Indeed, I will need the Chinese fonts from TeX in order to support
Chinese in TeXmacs. This presupposes that is easy for
the user to install Chinese support for LaTeX.

Just putting the lines you suggest don't suffice for me.
What I need is very precise information on which packages to install
(by preference rpm's for me) and a sample text which compiles fine for you.
After that, I may start working (although I can't promise any time table)...
