[Samba] copying files to windows - permissions, time

I use Samba to access a Windows 98 box from linux. When I copy a file from linux to win98, there are two annoying problems:

- it complains it cannot set permissions on the new file on windows - it should logically ignore all such errors (the FAT volumes mounted in fstab can have a "quiet" option for this, but it does not work for smbfs volumes). 

- the new file gets current date and time, instead of the original file's date and time.

I've searched through manuals but found nothing about how to fix these annoyances. Please help!
