[Samba] special chars in windows filenames

Hi folks!

I upgraded a red hat linux fileserver (kernel version 2.4.18-14)
from samba 2.x to samba 3.02.

After the upgrade, the special chars in windows filenames
(German Umlaute) were no more visible to clients but either
substituted with a little black rectangle or completely suppressed -
depending on the client operating system (W2000/W98).

Within the archived list I found a hint that the smb options dos/unix charset
might not be the solution, but it could be related to kernel restrictions.

Any hints?
