smbfs mounted files created owned by root?

Hi all. We have been denying NFS access to our Linux et al users since
they can of course set their uid to whatever they want. So we tell them
to use smbfs. But when I just tried experimenting by mounting my own
network share on my Linux box via smbfs, and created a few files, I loo
on the serevr and the files are all owned by root?! This has got to be a
configuration issue right?
