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).

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.
