You may just need the fonts.

To install the fonts:

# apt-get install ttf-arphic-bkai00mp ttf-arphic-bsmi00lp ttf-arphic-gbsn00lp ttf-arphic-gbsn00lp

If you need the locales:
run dpkg-reconfigure locales and choose:

* en_US ISO-8859-1
* zh_CN GB2312
* zh_CN.UTF-8 UTF-8
* zh_TW BIG5
* zh_TW.UTF-8 UTF-8

To input characters you will need an IM (input method) engine to input Chinese characters under X:
# apt-get install scim scim-chinese scim-tables-zh
