I've yet to see this posted anywhere so here goes. My roomates and I all
connect to the net via a cable router connected to an NT box with lots
of disk space. We all have directories on the NT box to store our
stuff. I connect via Samba using my Suse 63 box and my md7 laptop with
I become root or su and then use smbmount to mount the NT box to a dir I
call /server My problem is that I can only read or execute from the NT
mount. I cannot write to the NT box unless I login or su to root. This
is ok but rather annoying. I have pw encryption turned on of course.
Also security=user. I would like normal users to be able to write the
the NT box freely. What needs to be set?
I've tried the following

and chmod 777 /server.
This had the effect of opening all the permissions up but as soon as I
tried to smbmount //server/shared /server and then checked permissions
they were all set back to rwxr_xr_x What gives? This kind of points to
Unix permissions to me where I am kind of weak. Why are they resetting
