Question NFS Problem: Unknown Error 526

After a bit of Googling and searching, I'm struggling to figure this one out.

Performing an 'ls' on our Linux machines when in certain NFS mounted directories, we get the following error:

'Unknown error 526 (526)'

I've tracked this down to characters in file names, some are strange elongated hypens and others are accute accents and such like, because if I rename the files with these characters in, ls starts working just fine.

I believe I need to enable International character support or something like that, but I'm not entirely sure how to go about this, or if this is even the answer to the problem.

Our Linux Distros Are Red Hat Enterprise 3.0 Update 8
Our NFS Servers are Novell Netware 6.5 SP4 (NFS v3)

Any help much appreciated.


Update: I've tried copying one of the affected files on a memory key, mounted it up on the Linux box and it is able to retrieve the directory listing except the rogue character appears as a '?'

Update 2: I've managed to establish that the characters in question are all from the ISO8859-1 (Latin 1) character set, so I edited /etc/sysconfig/i18n and changed all the utf8 stuff to iso88591 and rebooted but it still comes up with question marks in the filename.
