[Samba] FW: Editing Word documents in a share from windows and Linux

This is the command I have used:

mount -t cifs -o username=amartinez // /home/SIENIC/amartinez/recurso2

these are the permissions of the folder before mount command

drwxrws--- 3 SIENIC\amartinez SIENIC\domain users  4096 nov 17 09:58 prueba2

these are the permissions of the folder after mount command

drwsrwsr-x  3 adolfo           BUILTIN\administrators     0 nov 17 15:05 recurso2

this is why the share is read only, the current user is the domain user "amartinez", adolfo is a local user, this machine is part of a DOMAIN, the PDC is a openSUSE 11.2 domain controller

how can I mount this share as a read/write share for the domain users logged in the current workstation?
