Unhappy NTFS - files with CE font characters not displayed?

Hi! I've installed Mandrake 10b2 and successfully mounted my NTFS drives, but there is one problem - files and folders, which were created in windows and contain some Central European characters in file or folder name, are not shown nor accessible. Other files are OK. Any idea how to fix this?? Thanks.

This is from the mount man page under the "Mount options for ntfs".
It looks promising:

Character set to use when returning file names.
Unlike VFAT, NTFS suppresses names that contain
unconvertible characters.
