I think this should be posted in superuser.com, if anywhere. Also, I thought that most Linux installations include fonts for all the major languages. – Evan Kroske Dec 3 '09 at 18:33

Update to Fedora 12. It has lots of Chinese fonts available to install. (Plus there are plenty of other reasons for updating)

You can get them from ftp.gnu.org. Read the Unicode HOWTO.

Wen Quan Yi (English, 中文) is the single best font with the widest codepoint coverage. Accept no substitutes.

On recent (accoding to rpmfind.net the package seems to be there from F13 to F20 at least) Fedora versions, installing cjkuni-ukai-fonts from the main repository seems to be enough to display Chinese characters.
