Table names seem to be case sensitive although column names are case insensitive on the same server (MySQL 4.20 Max/RH Linux 9).

I tested with InnoDB and MyISAM table types.

How to repeat:
create table EMPLOYEE
   EMPNO                          int                            not null,
   FIRSTNAME                      varchar(50),
   LASTNAME                       varchar(50),
   primary key (EMPNO)
type = InnoDB;

INSERT INTO EMPLOYEE VALUES("1", "Andi", "Moeller");
INSERT INTO EMPLOYEE VALUES("3", "Zinedine", "Zidane");

works (returns one record):
select * from EMPLOYEE where empno=2

doesn't work (doesn't return a record although there is one in the database):
select * from employee where empno=2
error: Table 'mdwork.employee' doesn't exist
