You mentioned that you tried to use a USB flash drive to copy the files

(therefore should have some kind of FAT filesystem), in that case you
can use Arne's advice above, use "mount -t vfat -o utf8 [device]
[mount_point]" to mount your flash drive, and see if it helps.

Yes, I forgot. Mounting as utf8 for the usb works perfectly. I can see
the chinese characters, etc. :)

But I would also prefer a better solution. Will LI's advice be the
best way? To convert gbk to utf8? But I can't view it even though my
locale has gbk, so I dare not try it yet. I have many files that have
weird characters, and dont' know what to do now.
