I have the same problem as you, and recompiled the kernel for adding support, but not working, still the problem there in my RH9 (maybe other distros haven't the problem....)

In a shell before you run it try


echo $LANG


export LANG=en_US or whatever main part is miss out the UTF-8 bit

And do a search on the forum even if works as it's come up a few times and I can't remember the specifics now
