thanks for the reply.  I suspected it would be that format but was thrown
off track by the "mask" name.

It's the same as the numerical format used by chmod. Or see the st_mode
flags in your fstat manpage. For example:
0775 gives owner and group "rwx" and others get "r-x"

"mask" is a bad name, it should have been "mode".

For smbfs you may also want to specify through uid/gid who the owner and
group are.
