Package: ncpfs
Version: 2.2.3-1

'ncpmount' man-page has following lines:

-y iocharset (mount option iocharset=)
          You  can  specify  character  translation rules for converting names 
from unicode to your desktop (it
          works together with -p).  iocharset is charset name, for example 

-p codepage (mount option codepage=)
          You can specify character translation rules for converting names 
from Netware encoding to unicode (it
          works together with -y).  codepage is codepage name, for example 

In item -y the example doesn't work. If you look at the ncpmount source code 
you notice, that the charset-string is pasted after 'nls_' -string and then 
ncpmount tries to load 'nls_charset' -module. Because kernel module for 
iso-8859-1 charset is named nls_iso8859-1 it can't work. 

The item -p works but I expect it is accidental :)

I think it would be helpful to at least fix the example. Mentioning the naming 
of kernel-modules would also be helpful.
