NFS-shares: Problem with locales/charset.

Hello all,

when I try to mount a NFS-share from one box (redhat 9) on another box (mandrake 9.3), I am getting problems with filenames containing locales. The directory has a ext3 filesystem.

What I think is, that this problem comes with the different coding schemes, both of those distros use (redhat: UTF-8 and Mandrake: ISO-8859-15 or xxx-1 maybe).

In did not find a <charset=xxx>-like option in 'man mount'.
Is it possible to translate one coding scheme into the other via mount-option? Or is there any other practical way to share directories over boxes with different coding schemes and filenames containing locales?

The only other way I can imagine is two change the system's charset - what might be a lot of work if I often have two 'adapt' the system two a specific server.
