Im trying to maintain file permissions while mount //machine/sharedblah
to /home

Currently, im using nfs to mount /home from one unix machine to another
and its slow.
I would like to use samba, but, i cant figure out how to maintain file

Here is a snip from my smb.conf file on file server (solaris)
        writeable = yes
        guest ok = no
        comment = Choke
        path = /home
        read only = no
        public = no

On the client end, im mounting this like so:

mount -t smbfs -o username=someguy,password=supersecurepassword
//machine/home /home

it mounts, only, everything on the client side is owned by root:root

Any help would be appreciated.
