I crashed my machine and a good friend installed for me
the last RedHat (2.4.20-19.9 from uname -a)

The problem I have is that if I have a file, that contains
ISO-8859-1 characters of code of value over 128 they are
not displayed on an xterm but they are displayed in vi !
If I import this file in OpenOffice writer the characters
of code of value over 128 are replaced by spaces...

So what shoud I set up (some environment variable to some
value) to have things work correctly.

Thanks for your help.
