specify encoding method when mounting a local drive


Hi guys:

I am trying to find out is there anyway that we can specify the encoding char set when mount a local drive.

I am using Ubuntu live CD, and it is lucky that when plug in USB drive, it automatically mounted on to the system and using correct char set e.g. Chinese Simplified. But for local harddisk, or even if I unmount the usb drive and mount it manually, then the char set is always english, and my chinese files appears to be ????only.

So is there any way that we can change the mounting char set setting.

Thanks a lot

i assume this is a windows drive ?
in /etc/fstab you would put
codepage=936,iocharset=cp936
in the comma seperated stuff (4th field)
for simplified chinese
i think

Hi, Thanks a lot for your advice, after a very busy month, I finally got a chance to try what you have told me.

I opened up /etc/fstab, what I saw is as follows:

/dev/mapper/casper-snapshot / auto noatime 0 0
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs nosuid,nodev 0 0

so where should I add in what you have showed me, ie.e the codepage and iocharset, also it is writable only under root acount. what is the default password for "root", any idea? thanks a lot.
