Chinese (Traditional) filename in both Linux and Windows XP

I currently run both a linux box and a windowxp box both with Chinese support. By themselves I can view and create the characters fine. The problem arises when I share a windows drive via SMB. Under linux, not chinese characters created by windows are reconzied and vis versa.

Under Linux, all encoding are done with UTF-8 and I was under the impression that windowsXP is also using UTF-8 encoding. Under that assumption should the two plateform be able to read the chinese characters?

Please let me know what I am missing and how to correct this. Thanx in advance
