Windows is not case sensitive - Unix is

This will take a bit of explaining:
I FTP files from a Windows 98 pc to a Unix Server running Apache. Windows is not case sensitive and Unix is. I have just received 200 pdf files on a CD. When I copy them to my pc Windows Explorer (and Dreamweaver) shows names like 'Page1.pdf'. The Dreamweaver site window shows upper case names like 'PAGE1.PDF'. Dreamweaver creates link code to 'Page1.pdf'. When I FTP the html pages the Unix server is going to have a link to 'Page1.pdf' but the file is called: 'PAGE1.PDF'. It takes ages to manually change the names of all the files (and I'm going to receive 100s more later).

Does anyone know a way to get Dreamweaver or Windows to show the correct case?

Thanks - that looks like it will sort the problem for me.
