Hello,

We have a PE2600 RH9, wich is a file server for XP Workstations. It run 
Samba 2.2.7a, with utf8 encoding in the smb.conf, and locales set to 
utf8. If I create a file with a french charactere like "éùàèê" via XP, 
on the shell it is replaced by a "?", and Nautilus replace it by a blank.
The problem is I cannot use a path with a such charactere in smb.conf to 
add a share.

This is the default config of the RH9, installed by Dell staff. What can 
I do?
Thanks in advance

Cédric
