That should be possible, but you should investigate smbtar (a wrapper 
around smbclient) or smbclient's tar option, which I believe will give more 
accurate permissions, other than that, to retain the unix permissions as 
well, you would need to use tar and netcat or tar and nfs.  I have done 
quite a bit of work with netcat so if you want to email me privately I 
should be able to help you set it up.

Life's a bitch, but so am I.
