Hi, first of all i'm sorry for my english.

I've a little problem with samba 3.6.6 and NTFS volume. I've mounted an 
USB drive in NTFS format on my server, and all works fine (characters 
are OK, i can create folders with accents or ñ like "camión", 
"muñeca"...), but when i try to share that drive through samba, all 
special characters look wrong and i can't create any folder with that 
I've a lot of shared folders in ext4 and all works fine, so i think that 
the problem is NTFS system.

I've tried some options like "dos charset", "unix charset" and "display 
charset", mounting that drive with "ntfs-3g -o iocharset=utf8", CP850... 
but nothing works.

Someone knows how to fix this?
