Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.choose chinese as the language of the system
2.log in as root under the console in text mode ( NOT in X Window )
Actual Results: the "setup" runs but display chinese incorrectly
Expected Results: display chinese correctly
bterm can be used as a workaround for utf-8 chinese (and other
hanxi/hanja/kanji base languages).
however, setup and the other terminals, for chinese, should be run in
gnome-terminal or something similar for the best support.
the next release should have a console based CJK solution.
