[Samba] UTF8 and codepage850

I have tried to setup a share that will use UTF8 to save all filenames. The
reason for this is that I want to use Helios Ethershare 2.6 so the Macs can
use the same share.
The problem is that the files will be saved as UTF8 and I can see the files
from the mac but not from the PC.
This ofcourse is only true if I use for example åäöÅÄÖ (Swedish characters)
If I use a-z A-Z it will work since I don't use any Unicode chars.

Samba version is 2.2.2
