Yes. SuSE 8.2 already works fine for UTF-8. Compared to newer
SuSE releases it has a few more bugs in an UTF-8 environment
but it is mostly OK.

Only the default after an installation is not UTF-8 for SuSE 8.2.

You just have to change the default system locale manually
after the installation. Just edit /etc/sysconfig/language and
run SuSEconfig afterwards.
