2 quick samba question

(1) Manage to connect to WinXP from Redhat Enterprise Linux with GUI interface. But can someone give me a quick reference on using samba in command line interface?

(2) My WinXP is setup with read permission for the "Everyone Group" and full permission for "John".

I have a problem copying file to my WinXP box when logon as root but not with John under Linux.

I believe is everytime a file is copied, it automatically change the file ownership to root. Anyway to get around it without logging on as John?
