Hello,

I use Ext2fsd to mount an ext2 partition (mainly used
under Linux) when running windows.

I have found the following problem I have'nt been able
to solve:

When creating a file / folder which contains accented
characters (ŕ á ä č é (a grave, a acute, etc) ), the
name does not appear the same on both OS. Example:

If I create a folder with an accented character (let's
say "a grave") using Linux, when reading it from
Windows, this character appears as another one (for
example, an uppercase greek Beta).

If I do it the other way, (folder created under windows
and read under Linux) the same occurs.

I am using Mandrake Linux 2005 (10.2) and Windows XP.
On /etc/fstab

    Hello,

    I use Ext2fsd to mount an ext2 partition (mainly used under
    Linux) when running windows.

    I am using Mandrake Linux 2005 (10.2) and Windows XP. On
    /etc/fstab the partition is mounted as iso8859-15. I've
    tried changing the CodePage entry in the Windows registry
    (I've tried iso8859_15 and iso8859_1) but hasn't worked.

    Errr... what should I do?

    Thank you very much,

    Roger
