One of my SD cards got corrupted and displays several files with
mangled filenames... namely high-ascii chars

Windows XP refuses to rename those diaplaying some odd error message
that I didn´t write down.

Will Linux do? Or is there another solution? The files are there, and
two of the mangled filenames are very long OSD recordings.

The card is a 4GB SD (non-SDHC) PQI, FWIW. Format was obviously fat32.

You should be able to remove them under Linux, at least with the right
mount options. But I'd try running checkdisk (etc.) first.

You probably can with Windows too (try from the DOS prompt, for
example).

Or, if there isn't any data you want on the card, just format it.
Right-click the drive in Windows, format, make sure "quick" is checked.

You will probably be able to do it in linux.  There is a lot of way, but one that almost always work is
 
ls -lit (to get the inum of the file)
find . -inum XXXXX -exec mv {} file1.mp4 \;
 
something like that

try out testdisk for raw data grabbing and identifying files.
