hi i use vl 5.8 soho with kde 3.5.6

with an german enviroment...
which characterencoding cheme should i use. in particular with context to windows boxes.

i always have had troubles with the correct fit.
mostly the umlaute (ä,ü,ö..) are rplaced by exclamaition marks...
so..this issue is related to firefox, thunderbird and konqueror..

what would be the best wa to avoid future hassles with windows boxes...

Try to modify your /etc/X11/xorg.conf according to this post

Your keyboard layout should be de (I suppose, deutsch)
