Problems with Character Sets (cp1251) on hosting with mysql 4.1.18?

I have problems with cyrillic character sets in the the mysql databases (smth this ???????????).
I have found how to fix this problem. It is a sending of additional query.

function mysql_connection ()
Global $host,$user,$pass;


mysql_query("SET NAMES cp1251");

return $dbc;

But sometimes it does not work (if connecting was lost or was much queries to database). My hosting has _ENV["LANG"] en_US.UTF-8 and mysql 4.1.18.
1) Do you know another way how I can work with Cyrillic Character Sets (cp1251) without sending of additional query?
2) Is there way to set the configuration for work mysql with cp1251 from .htaccess because I have not access to php.ini and my.ini files on hosting?
