NTFS partition: how to mount with UTF8 charset


If i mount my NFTS partition without charset= or nls= option, im getting errors from time to time:
NTFS-fs error (device hdc1): ntfs_ucstonls(): 
Unicode name contains characters that cannot be converted
 to character set iso8859-1.
I read it helps if i mount them with UTF8, but it doesn't work:

# mount -t ntfs -o nls=utf8 /dev/hda1 /mnt/c
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda1,
       missing codepage or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so
What can i do about that?
