Description Milan Kerslager 2000-06-13 21:54:00 UTC
If I select FAT partition in Disk Druid to be visible (ie mounted) from my 
Linux box, for Czech language we really need this options added to fstab:


Without this options is pretty unusable to walk through FAT/VFAT disk 
because MS (and users ofcourse) use national characters in the names of the 
files and directories so this is impossible to work with this partitions 
without translating the names to the 8859-2 codepage. Other i18n languages 
have similar problem, but 'codepage' may be different. If there is a 
posibility to mark partition in Disk Druid to be mounted in live 
filesystem, it should be done properly and usable, Thanx :-)

BTW: this is the well known FAQ in our country, but all newbies over 
the World dislike to digging around for simple solutions... :-(

This is more of a local configuration issue rather than an installation issue.
