How to preserve case in Russian file names

Well, I cannot find any problem. I am running WinNT4 WS English with Russian
default locale set. SAMBA is configured with 866 client code page. I can
create and use files with russian names without any problem. I must admit, I
have currently samba-2 alpha, but I cannot remeber any real problem with
1.9.18 either (not that I needed russian file names on SAMBA much :))

How client code page is set? What client do you use?
