   I'm mounting Windows 2000/XP disk drives from Linux RedHat 7.3 using
   smbmount. No problems, the disks are mounted.

   However, it disregards the "uid" and "gid" options and leaves the
   smbfs owned by "root" giving the "uid" user read-only access and not
   read-write as expected.  Adding the "rw" doesn't help either.

   What am I doing wrong?
