file permissions and smbmount

I'm using Samba 2.0.6 on a Linux server.  

When using smbmount or mount to mount a share from an NT server, how do I
set file permissions.  An older smbmount allowed a -d and -f switch to set
the file permissions.  The newest one does not support these.  The man pages
for smbmount and smbmnt mention using syntax that does not work.  

I finally have gotten the mount command to work, but now I can't write to
the share because of permissions.
