this is no serious problem as it seems that it works never the less.
NLS is compiled into the kernel (or as modules) in order to match
special character-sets. compile the kernel with the following:

kernel 2.0.36:
 submenu "filesystems"
  <M> Codepage 437 (important)
  <M> Codepage 850 (for europ. countries, or use another one for your
  <M> NLS ISO 8859-1 (important)

kernel 2.2.3:
  (just as sown above, but these options are in a submenu deeper,
   called "Native Language Support")

you may want to leave out the Codepage 850 ... decide yourself by
looking at the help!
compile kernel+modeles, install 'em and that's it I suppose :-)

So far, Jim (Matthias Knopf)
