Well, I can see by your posting times that you waited four hours for someone to help. That's not very long.
Also, it appears that you have not done much searching yourself. For exmaple, the keywords "samba codepage" on Google brought up this page first:
Did you install Samba correctly? Have you tried make_smbcodepage? What else have you tried? What kind of system are you using? Is the domain 2000 boxes, or is it a mix of NT and 2000?

If you want help, please be patient, and don't be afraid to try to find out an answer yourself in the meantime.
