File name problem with Win2K

Here is the problem. I make a directory "xyz" and put file "a" in it, 
then make a directory "XYZ" and put file "b" in it. When viewing the 
samba share with Win2K I see both directories "xyz" and "XYZ", but the 
only file that both directories have in them is file "a".  If you use 
NT4 you will see a directory "xyz" and a directory "Xyz", but you still 
have the problem

It looks like Win2k (and Win NT4) is confused about the case of the 
directories. Is there any fix for this. Other then kicking the 2K box.
