Hi There,

  I am trying to use smbmount to copy files to a windows machine.
It works If I do it as root but I would like to do it as a user or at 
least so that the directory which I mount has permissions for that user?

 >smbmount //myipaddress/share /mnt/backup -o username=myusername uid=501

The error I get is:
smbmnt must be installed suid root for direct user mounts (501,501)
smbmnt failed: 1
