[Samba] accented letters in filenames

I am trying to connect to a samba server (hosted by a
unix platform; for which I have also ftp and telnet
access). I have problems with accents in filenames:

when I issue the command 

 mount -t smbfs -o
//nestor.ulb.ac.be/oesser /mnt/nestor

 all works fine

but if I put 

//nestor.ulb.ac.be/oesser /mnt/nestor smbfs
0 0

in /etc/fstab accented letters created when accessing
the count via the preceding command or via telnet or
ftp are replaced by unprintable characters

What I really don't understand is that I have put
exactly the same options in boths case and the result
is not the same.

About my configuration: I am using Mandrake 10.0
official and I attach my /etc/sysconfig/i18n which
reflet my current locale. I am unsure about exactly
what command are called by mount and what are their
versions. Please tell me if more information is needed

Many thanks for your help!
