Thank you for you help. It is now working !
Here is what I have done:

On the server the smb.conf file is now:
workgroup = MYGROUP
netbios name = SAMBA
server string = Samba Server
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
max log size = 1000
unix extensions = No
load printers = No
hosts allow =, 192.168.0.
hosts deny = all

comment = Home Directories
read only = No

On both the server & PC1 the /etc/sysconfig/i18n file is:

Then I have no problem anymore with the new files. For existing files
that were not created with utf8 but with iso8859, I have used the tools
you suggested  http://j3e.de/linux/convmv/ and it worked perfectly.

Now both laptops using FC3 and XP can connect to the FC3-server !

Thank you very much for your help.
