I'll never do this, sorry. Now I know why some messages are sorted strange :-)

What I did is: reconfigured locales, checked all DE-boxes, checked all 
RU-Boxes, selected DE_utf@euro.... and finally have uk-charset on the 
keyboard (in text-runlevel).

No samba at all (til now).

I am at the point that cyrillic chars are always ????-displays (in text mode) 
and glyphs in graphic mode (konqueror). I changed the charset of konqi to 
utf8 without any change. Am I too stupid to use debian? Maybe...

I think my main problem is, that I dont know whom to ask for what. Is it a 
problem of X, Display Manager, Kde at all, Konqueror, a mount problem... it 
could be everything.
