I am having a problem with accented folder and win98.

the setup is
PDC (under NT) , a Linux Samba as a file server added to the domain 
(smbpasswd and winbind) and a W98 client
in any share, if i create a folder named "aaa" for exemple i can get in it.
but if i create a folder named "ééé" or any accented char i just can get 
in it. Windows Error : no such file or directory.
on the linux box the folder has been created proprely : ééé
on the W98 the name appears correct : ééé

now ... and here is the weird thing: if i change
everything goes fine ... my problem is that i need to have security=domain.

With a W2000 client there is no problem, with chmod=777 same thing, with 
different user same thing....
the problem is not about code page or character set. i tried all of  them

Any Suggestion ?

here is my smb.conf:

   workgroup = METLTM
   netbios name = METLTM-Linux
   server string = METLTM-Linux Samba Server
   printcap name = cups
   load printers = yes
   printing = cups
   printer admin = @"Admins du domaine"
   log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
   max log size = 1
   log level = 1
   security = domain
#   security = user
#   security = share
   password server = METLTM_NT4
   encrypt passwords = yes
   smb passwd file = /etc/samba/smbpasswd
   winbind uid = 1000-10000
   winbind gid = 1000-10000
   winbind separator = +
   winbind use default domain = yes
   template homedir = /bureautique/individuel/%U
   obey pam restrictions = yes
   template shell = /bin/sh
   socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
   dns proxy = no
   winbind cache time = 10
   winbind enum users = Yes
   winbind enum groups = Yes

   client code page = 850
   character set = ISO8859-1
   follow symlinks = no
   veto files = /.bash*/.screenrc/.mailcap/

#============================ Share Definitions 
#   comment = Home Directories
#   browseable = no
#   writable = no
#   path = /home/administrateur
#   write list = administrateur

   comment = repertoire individuel
   browseable = no
   writable = yes

    guest ok=yes
