"graphics" characters in text mode

I hate being stupid, but I have a problem getting the old "extended ascii" set to display in mutt or the text mode versions of the system-config scripts in Fedora 9.

Example: system-config-language display garbage characters around buttons, etc. Mutt does the same when trying to display the arrow character.

My environment is as follows:


I am connecting remotely to the box using ssh on cygwin or putty and it worked fine when I had Gentoo installed on the server, but today I installed Fedora 9 and now I have this problem. I remember that I had this before, but cannot remember how I fixed it

Any help will be appreciated, thanks!
