We have the same problem with a Win98 box connecting to a SCO 5.0.4 box
with Samba 2.0.6
A "solution" seems to be adding  "case sensitive = no" to each of the 
share definitions in smb.conf
Yes, I know "case sensitive = no" is the default anyway, but it works for
us...   We look after 6 SCO 5.0.4 boxes running 2.0.6, but only one needs
this line in the smb.conf

<sigh>   :-)
