Is that 6.5 Sp8? IS UTF-support on or off in the client?

The Novell Client for Windows 7 is expected to use UTF8-enabled NCPs
which will support using almost any Unicode character in the file
name.

If using Polish characters in the file name isn't working, is this
possibly a Traditional File System (TFS) volume on the NetWare 6.5
server instead of a Novell Storage Services (NSS) volume? NSS volumes
can store Unicode filenames, but TFS volumes can not.

For non-NSS volumes, the file names would be restricted to characters
which can be represented by the Windows "Language for non-Unicode
Programs" (also known as "System Locale") configured in the Region and
Language control panel.

If your Windows 7 installation media was Polish, this setting should
have already defaulted to a Polish code page. If your Windows 7
installation media was English or other non-Polish language, and
you've installed a Polish language pack, then the non-Polish "Language
for non-Unicode Programs" setting may be what's preventing saving
Polish characters to the non-NSS volume.
