[Samba] smbmount / smbfs error - cant load nls charset

I’m getting this line:
“smbfs: failed to load nls ‘iso8859-16’”
in /var/log/syslog when I try and mount a share on a Windows XP machine
with this line:
mount –t smbfs –o
//computer/RAID /remote-RAID
How can I overcome this as I believe its preventing filenames from being
copied correctly to the Linux machine, for example É characters are not
copied and a white space character is used instead.
Ive tried this with many different versions of samba and none seem to
work. My currently installed version is: Version 3.0.0-Debian
