I want to shares files over samba with names like "M*A*S*H - Episode" or 
"Aesop And Son: Episode" but have found it hasn't worked that well.
I added mangled names = no to smb.conf so the name is not mangled and 
what happens is the full name is included in a directory listing but I 
can't read the file.
There were a few times it did work so I want to know if anyone knows how 
to make it always work.
My clients are CIFS in Linux and Windows XP.
