Thank You!!!
Now Mysql 4.1.12 is up and running. I have been changing tables to utf8 and all that sort of things. I think that this side of the matter is OK now.

Now the remaining problem seems to be Php 4.3.0. I haven't been able to retrieve any of my cyrillic characters yet. After going deeper into the matter, I unfortunately have started to see the dark shadow of upgrade to Php 5.0 glooming over me. I'm not sure yet. Maybe this "htmlentities" -function will do the job. It just sounds a bit sloppy...Might be slow with large chunks of text. I don't know. I have gotten the impression that 5.0 would be able to handle unicode in a more straightforward way. Do you know about this? (and I still don't know exactly how this htmlentities -function works)

I think I have made a personal record. I searched Google with string "'php 4.3' mysql unicode cyrillic". I got 2420 hits. But the first three ones were my own messages on different forums (including this). As you can see, I've really tried hard. But the most helpful answers I've been getting here. You're my favourite Mysql-guru, Shu!
