	don't know it you have been successfull, any way: There's no problem 
with samba, when you mount a share, you have to assign a local uid and 
gid to link theese files to your local filesystem.

	"mount" accepts the options "uid=localUsername,gid=localGroupname" , 
surely also "smbmount" can.

	And also take care that theese is also related with the "unix 
extensions" parameter in "smb.conf". You just have to do some "man 
smb.conf" and maybe "man mount" and "ls -d /mnt/share" and you will got 
it working.

	Best regards,
