Installing Korean (etc) fonts

Hope this isn't too stupid a question.

I am using emacs 22.3.1 under mandriva 2009.0. In an earlier
incarnation, I was able to input and view Korean hangul chars. Now all
I see are boxes.

The info says to install GNUintlfonts. So I downloaded that as a
tarball. Somewhere else it said to do:

  xset fp+ /usr/local/share/emacs/fonts
  xset fp rehash

So I created that directory, which did not exist, moved the Korean
fonts from the unpacked tar to there (as a subdir). 

Then I tried the xset, but there is no such command on this distro.

Tried 'drakconf'; the only font manipulation tool I found there did
not seem to be able to find any fonts to install.

I'm growing more and more to detest mandrivel, but I hope that someone
can help me to figure out this situation.
