SMB shares and fstab

I am mounting smb shares from a Win2k3 server for our linux users. I want it to be automatic so I am trying to use fstab. here is the entry I currently have:

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
//homer/Files /mnt/ram/homer smbfs username=user,password=pass,gid=500,mode=666 0 0

The share is mounting, however I need the users to have read and write acces on this volume. I also tried mode=777 which did not work....

thanks in advance.............

You will need to use the umask option.
The umask value is an octal number (i.e. 4 digits) that represent the bitmask of the permissions that are not present.
If you want to set the permissions to read and write, the umask will be 0111.
