Forget about 2.0, 2.2.7 or later req'ed iirc. About your perm prob: upgrade
client side VFS module to 1.0.4 (if it isn't already in 2.6.6) and mount.cifs
to latest version, some credentials issues patched there, too.
Apart from that - when you got it working, can you try copying a few hundred
MB (one big file or many small doesn't matter) and check for hangs?
