in my debian sarge I followed this tutorial for portuguese... 
He says to put locales in iso8859-1 then to compile the kernel with some 
options for that, but I have not did that and it worked by adding this 
to smb.conf:

dos charset = cp850
unix charset = iso8859-1
display charset = LOCALE

now you should change for your locale I don't know if it is the same in
