I had the same issue. It's all in the sort setting unser site actions. Take a look at this link, it gets you to the area you need to adjust the sort settings.

Sharepoint is considering this field as string and sorting it on String basis only, i.e. why u r not getting ur desired results (Bcoz Name is a mix of string & int).

I don' think u will be able to modify this sorting behavior in SP, instead u can try creating another column based on this Name column and sort basis on that custom column.

Looking at your link want I need to enable Publishing Features.  Unfourtanly that feature is only in MOSS 2007-10. Not 3.0, so I guess I need to seek approval for 2010 purchase :-)
I think  navtej dhillon is right- we had a similar problem with a document library for meeting documents, where the documents needed to be listed in the order they appeared on the agenda.  We created a column called Agenda Order of type number and used it to sort the items in the library.
