can anyone tell me how to access the multiple language features in OS 9? As I understand, multi language support is built-in to OS 9 (you had to buy lang kits for 8.6 and before). I have even located the multi language install on the OS 9 disk, but am unsure how to enable it. how can I swith between english and another language? I would like my mac to display allo text in korean. I have seen a G4 with japanese (kanji) but am unable to reproduce it on my G4. Any suggestions?

Enable languages you want in Keyboard control panel then switch them when you need to.

Not quite... the Language Kits (what 9 includes) do NOT localize the computer. They just allow text in those languages to entered into programs that are made to do that (i.e. Finder, WordPerfect 3.x), and allow already-localized programs to display text properly. They do not localize anything.
