Method to validate a file name

I have a web application where the user can type the name of a file name in a field. I want to make
sure the syntax of that filename is valid before using it.

I browsed the methods in various .Net 2.0 framework assemblies and there does not seem to be any to
validate the syntax of a string representing a filename.

Is there a method I can use to validate the syntax of a NTFS file name?

regards,

Gaetan.
