I hope to take a short look at msdosfs code tonigh, probably i'll find smth 
usefull.. I really want to play my mp3 files with russian names :)

BTW files were created with Win2k so original codepage isn't CP866/DOS or 
CP1251/Windows but Unicode...

ps: And of course i have the same problem when i mount ISO9669 disks 
containing != ASCII file names :) Is this behaviour general for FS layer ?
