It is supported only on Windows NT (and NT based win versions)
(SetConsoleCP, SetConsoleOutputCP API functions).

On a Win9x system a little trick may help (not 100% sure):
+ Install display.sys with a modified (ANSI compatible) font file
+ install a new keyboard driver (OEM chars mapped to ANSI chars)
   Non-english keyboards only
+ and call SetFileAPIsToANSI API function at program beginning.
