Samba file naming conventions

I'm not exactly sure how i should deal with this. Basically, I have finally set up Samba and magically it works. I just copied a directory from my w2k machine to the shared drive on my linux box. But when i access the directory on the console..i get this:

# cd /mnt/5GB
# ls
downloaded mp3 recycled
# cd mp3
# ls
CD Mojo 2.0
# cd CD Mojo 2.0
-bash: cd: CD: No such file or directory

i'm guessing i need to somehow enable something in the samba config....but i'm not sure what to do?

you need a slash before the space
cd CD\ Mojo\ 2.0
or just type the first letter and press tab for auto-complete
