Samba server encoding problems!

Hello, I have a debian box with samba server. Our workstations are Windows XP Proffessional. The problem is that when I create a folder or file with greek name through samba, the folder or file's name is unreadable in the shell (Ξ?ΞΞΈΞΌΞΏΞ―). Also if I create a file/folder with greek name at the shell, the name is unreadable through samba (__).

What can I do to fix this?

Thanks in advance,


encoding, samba, server
