i haven't tried, but guess it will work as expected. ;)
but, hey,

1) really if there's a way to determin the line (ttyXXX) 's
capability for chinese support?? hehe, this is surely crazy! ;)

2) will the "11:2345:respawn:LC_ALL=zh_CN.XXXX /sbin/mingetty tty11"
in the /etc/inittab work too? hehe... i'll test it. ;)

happy day!
