[CentOS] Accents in filenames on vfat filesystem

That depends on the 'native' character set you are using.

On my Fedore Core 2 system where the native Linux character set is set to 
'iso-8859-2' the following in /etc/fstab works wonders (one line):

/dev/hda1                                 /c          vfat 

If your system is set for UTF-8 (like most newer systems) then you'll need 
to use something else (-o utf8 ?)
