Then it's a Unix problem, not a Samba problem.  I suspected as much.

I am stumped, though.  I have no idea why this

> /dev/hdb1 /mnt/dosD noexec,noauto,user 0 0
> su USERID -c "/bin/mount /mnt/dosD"

works and what I said doesn't.  The only thing I can think of is a bug
in your `mount' command (which is either distributed by itself or as
part of `util-linux').  This seems unlikely, though -- would Red Hat
distribute a broken `mount' command?
