In Mac OS X 10.1.2, running Mathematica 4.1, you can type Chinese simply using Apple's bundled Chinese character set. Run your Software Update if you haven't already. About a month ago Apple released the Chinese input system. Once you have that, go to your System Preferences's International panel, Keyboard Menu tab. You'll be able to select Chinese. Once this is done, you should have a kepboard menu on the menu bar that lets you switch input languages/methods. That should work in any unicode-aware application, and indeed it does in Mathematica 4.1 for Mac. If you are running latest Windows (i.e. 2000 or XP), i'm fairly certain the situation is similar. i.e. you do not need extraneous software such as NJStar to input Chinese. Just download Microsoft provided input systems.
