dos charset - dos codepage used by clients
unix charset - character set used in your unix system
display charset - character set used in programs which display information to
the user (e.g. smbclient)
This is what my smb.conf starts with:
dos charset = 850
unix charset = ISO-8859-15
display charset = ISO-8859-15
