Mine looks like this: arne@taoyuan:~$ locale LANG=en_US.UTF-8 LC_CTYPE=zh_TW.UTF-8 LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8" LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8" LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8" LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8" LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8" LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8" LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8" LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8" LC_ALL= arne@taoyuan:~$ Then the next question is: what flavor of WindowsXP do you have the files from? Is it simplified chinese (PRC) or traditional chinese (HK, TW) or the international version (US-english)? (if I may guess, your name looks like Cantonese writing, so I suppose you are from HK... ergo, my guess is your filenames are either in Big5, or in UTF-8 but your system locale is not...) do you have your windows on the same machine (dual boot)? or is it on a seperate machine? if the partition is on the same machine, try to set your system locale to a UTF-8 one and mount your windows partition with the 'utf8' option... mount -o utf8 -t vfat if it is on a seperate machine, try to share the drive and connect via smbclient over the network: smbclient //hostname/share -U useraccount then use 'ls' or 'dir' to list the directory contents... are the characters displayed correctly?
