[Samba] Unix Extensions

I looked at the changelog for 3.0.3 and 3.0.4 and noticed a few things
referencing the unix extensions in the 3.0.3 update. Just to be safe, I
installed 3.0.4 and am still having the same problem.
On the server, I have "unix extensions = yes" set under the share name
in the smb.conf. The client has Samba 3.0.2, but I can upgrade to 3.0.4
if you think it'll help at all...
When I test it, I type "mount -t smbfs //hostname/share /mnt/point
-o,username=user,workgroup=WRKGRP" to mount it, then go into the
/mnt/point directory and type "ln -s oldfile newlink". When I do that
now, I get an "Operation not permitted" error. Yes, I have full
permissions on the directory, and can create new files and everything...
so that's not it. Am I missing something? Is there another option for
the mounting command that I should use?
