Hello everyone
Sorry, I know this has been asked before, but according to my searches, has 
been answered in as many different ways, I have tried a couple of them and 

I can browse the share fine using konqueror (smb:/user at 2k3server/statdata$)
I am using SuSE rpms - Version 3.0.11

I would like to mount a hidden share on a server 2003 machine. It denies me 
access to the mount point after mounting.

I have suid'd smbmnt and then run this as the user I want to use to browse the 
smbmount //2k3server/statdata$ /home/user/winmounts -o username=user,gid=100

This completes without error, but now I cannot browse the mount point:
ls winmounts
/bin/ls: winmounts: Permission denied
I get the same when running the command as root.

What am I doing wrong?
