Special Characters

Hi all,
     I'm changing from NT to Linux. All is working fine but because I'm in Mexico we use special characters as: áéíóúñ...

With windows NT there is no problems when I transfer files with special characters in the name to the server folder. But with Linux when I try to copy a file to Linux (samba) server folder then I get an error message and the file is created in the folder but I have no acces to it unless I go to the server (physically) and rename or delete the file or folder. I have noticed that this happens when I copy or transfer files with special characters.
Is there any configuration I have to do in the Linux box to accept the special characters?
