Hm, sorry - I don't have any experience with that charset. :(
But I'm interested in solving your problem so let's try to figure it
out together. :)

If you are using "grml lang=ja" you will get LANG="ja_JP":

# grep ja_JP /etc/locale.gen
ja_JP.UTF-8 UTF-8

Is this corresponding to what you would like to get?
Do you mean X or plain console or both together? :)

Does "modprobe nls_cp932" help?
Does "apt-cache search xfonts-" bring anything useful for you?
Are the packages chdrv, chdrvfont, xcin useful for you?

What do you exactly mean? Which erros do you get?

Do you know the "/usr/include/linux does not link to
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/" hint from
http://wiki.grml.org/doku.php?id=grml_0.7 ?

Do the packages ttf-junicode, ttf-thryomanes and xfonts-tipa help
