[Samba] Special Characters in filename

I have a samba 3 server running in a win98 workgroup. All the users can
access files and such. There are some files, however, that have special
characters in the filename - "#" or " ' ". Such as acp#324.ach or
delt'3.dtl . These files list the names properly from the windows
explorer on the 98 machines, but a DOS console app - ACCPAC - does not
read these names correctly. When you look at the properties of the file
or in DOS the name is all screwed up... Any idea's..
