Suse and ISO-8859-15 charset

I am trying to use the mentioned charset in suse 10.0, but no luck. I tried to change it via YAST => sysconfig editor => system => Environment => Language => RC_LANG, but the choice wasn't there. Do I need to install it somehow?

Found this on a website:
You can quite easily check whether a certain locale exists on your system by executing the command

LC_CTYPE=<locale-name> locale charmap
If you don't have it, you could install either the cups or htmldoc package.
I found the first part using google and the second part using a search.

Well, apparently you can just type the wanted charset into the box in yast. Works now, I didn't notice the "or any value" in the on-screen help.
