First, this sounds pretty dodgy to me. I have a feeling that they're
overlooking some other problem. But that won't help you.

This is ok -- the binaries are compatible across major versions, so a
7.3.3 tree should work with 7.3.x

You need the locale support offered by the Red Hat system. Seems you
need ISO 8859-15. My bet is either that Mandrake's locale doesn't
support that, you don't have the right libs, or the binary you've
installed wasn't compiled with the right support. Can you actually
set your LANG to iso885915?

you told them to. That actually seems sort of quaint now.
