Hello .. Need some Help ..

I have this small question .. ONLY if the answer is YES give me the answer !!!

In our old Windows NT 4 server our webpage that have links to some files ..
In winodws NT4 if we write the link small or capital letter other than the path of the file when you clcik on this links the links work fine.
When we change our server to Linux Red Hat 6.1 our pages links are not working .. becuase we have been told that Linux see the links (case-sensitive) like passwords !!

Example: (1)

Inside The Links: Rasound/Test.htm

The file path are: Rasound/test.htm

Note that in Windows Nt 4 server this links work !!
In Linux RedHat 6.1 this links does not work !! why becuase you see the file (Test.htm) the first letter is Capital and the true file in the path (test.htm) first letters are in  small ...Need to be(case-sensitive).

Example (2):
Inside The Links: RasunD/test.htm
The file path are: Rasound/test.htm

In this Example (in Linux) the link do not work becuase of the letter D (RasunD) is captial other than the file path ...

Note: if there is a way to make Linux Redhat 6.1 read all of these links of files as the same if they are in small or Capital letters link Windows NT 4 becuase we have more than 10000 links !! & we can not go back to Windows NT 4.

Thanks ..

Hakim

Try loading the module mod_speling.

(That is really how you spell its name).  It will try to match urls even though they do not match because of case.
