Anybody know how to do access to the russian name of the files and
directories from Win98 client machine?

For example dirs name:
/usr/local/samba/shares/Папка для бумаг

I am create a share 'Папка для бумаг' on the SMB server and from WinNT
machine I am accessable to this folder.
But from Win98 I am not accessable to that folder. The Win98 browser can not
find russian folder.
When folder name is english  - access all right on Win98.
When folder name is russian  - access is not work on Win98.
I have been used Samba 2.0.6 and Samba 2.2.1a.
