Good morning freedom lovers!

First thing you should do when you upgrade to hoary is enable UTF-8 by
default -> and only UTF-8! :-)

1. sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales
2. Disable all of the ISO-8859-1 locales in the list
3. Enable the appropriate UTF-8 locales for the languages you use
4. Choose a UTF-8 locale as the default system locale
