File name truncation

One of my bosses has an Powerbook with OS X operating system. He cannot see the full file names of files on our server, while the PC users in the office can. See Attached.
We have gone to a MAC store and contacted their technical support, and they say it's a Microsoft Issue.... however, big surprise, Microsoft says it's a MAC issue.
I am not sure where to go - hence me asking the forum. Has anyone had any experience with something like this and did you find a solition?

It's hard to say anything without any information about either the version of Windows or the version of Mac OS X you're using, but I suspect that you're connecting using AFP. Windows Server 2003 only supports an obsolete version of AFP.
You should be able to connect using SMB (type smb:// before the server name) and see the full names.
