I'm using RedHat 7.3 and samba 2.2.7a,

Using windows98 and NT4 workstations, I get a weird problem.
Writing a longfilename directory on a real NT server a  direct. like 
program files would be \progra~1
On a samba server it's changed in progr~NK or something like this. It's 
never the same. Therefor, for older dos applications it's not possible to 
enter the directory.

Is this a problem only I have? Or did I do something wrong? I found 
something about hash and hash2. But this does not solve my problems.
