What about smb.conf?

Replacing smbfs with cifs fails to mount the share.

I've never been able to find a good reference or HOWTO for accessing a Windows domain share from a Linux client, so I expect I've left some steps out. All I've done is add a line to /etc/fstab, and then try the commands we've discussed here. I have done nothing to smb.conf or the share on the server. I can access the share with rw access from a Windows XP computer using the same credentials.

If I understand right:
You can rw from windows to linux but not the other way?
If this is correct the smb.conf should be OK.
is your shared folder in windows set to writable?

I have not attempted to go from Windows to Linux. I can go Linux to Windows but only read-only.

Permissions on the Windows share are "Everyone - Full Control". Security for the shared folder allows my Windows AD account "Modify" access.

Quoting from a response to this question as posted at TechRepublic

"ahh, I bet I know.
Red Hat 9 is the linux version
and I'll bet that the file system on the windows system is NTFS.

NTFS, up until fedora 4 release, was read only for non root because the support for it wasn't solid enough to risk the data corruption."

I logged on the RH9 system as root instead of my user account and I was able to access the Windows share with full access privs. In theory this problem should go away when I install Fedora Core 5 next week.

Thanks to everyone for their assistance.
