Japanese IME on Ubuntu? Help!

I'm a long-time Windows user switching over to
n00buntu Ubuntu 6.10 in the hopes that it'll run faster and more stable than a couple-years-old XP install on an oldish laptop.
However, one of the nicest features of Windows that I remember was the ridiculously feature-rich Japanese IME for non-Japanese keyboards, and Linux doesn't seem to feature that sort of thing natively. It isn't a dealbreaker, but I definitely liked having it around.
I've recently found out about a piece of software called IM-JA though, but I seriously need a walkthrough of this sort of thing -- I'm a near-complete *NIX newbie who was so thoroughly trained in DOS Back In The Day that the *NIX command line is baffling, like learning a second foreign language years after your first.
Anyway, can anyone help me get IM-JA running with the same level of integration and ubiquity that Windows' IME had? And for bonus points, can anyone offer advice on getting GJiten running from basically a fresh Ubuntu install?
