Can you give some more high-level detail on this?  Does it affect NetBIOS 
naming as well?

I note, for example, that W/95 will allow extended characters (o-umlaut, 
a-acute, etc.) but that their octal values to not match the latin-1 set 
I'm used to on my Linux and BSD boxes.  I assume from your message that 
there is a mapping that can/should be done.

Point me to docs???
