OK, thanks, I managed to insert cyrillic characters into a mysql database using koi8_ru charset. Now the problem seems to be that php supports koi8_ru (and cp1251) only from 4.3.2 onwards, and so I should upgrade php.
Then, I thought about using Unicode (UTF-8), (which is supported by my version of Php). But obviously Mysql 3.23.55 does not support it since it was not included in the listing I got with SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'CHAR%'. So I thought maybe I should upgrade Mysql. But I don't find any documentation about Mysql 4.0 supporting it or not.

So , anyone knows about Mysql 4.0 and Unicode?

What do you think would be the least trouble's way: upgrading Php (to have koi8_ru) or upgrading Mysql (to have Unicode, that is, if Mysql 4.0 supports Unicode)?
