Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

If I mount manually, nothing changes. I can see files, open them,but can't save anything. Yes, my credentials file looks correct.
I also tried connecting to a different XP machine where I shared the drive with the same results. Directories are wide open, but file show rights of "-rwxrwSrwt" and cannot write to any file or put a new file into a directory.
Not that it makes a difference, but the first machine (n drive in fstab) is a NTRS drive, while the second XP machine is using a fat32 drive. I've also tried turning selinux and firewalls off -- no change.
What else should I try (besides putting linux on the xp boxes).
Distribution: RHEL/CentOS/SL 5 i386 and x86_64 pata for IDE in use
This is expected and normal: file show rights of "-rwxrwSrwt"
Example: -rwxrwSrwt 1 root root 249K Mar 6 10:09 tzupdater-1_0_1.zip
Are you mounting as root and your normal user account does not have write access???
Try making the user part of the groups, using my groups as an example;
$ groups lenard
lenard : lenard root daemon sys adm disk wheel
