OK, I found it. I have to mount the Partition with umask=0000, then it's 
possible for every user (including the guest account) to write to it, too. 
But is there a possibility that I give write access to someone who connects 
as a guest but deny writing access to the users on the local machine? (That 
would make sense for e.g. a webserver that has several user accounts but 
also provides file sharing for the local network it is connected to.)
