Mounting permissions

I mount my win2000 share under /mnt/win, I set the permissions on the win directory so that only myself and root have access to it, but after I mount the drive the permissions charge to the default permissions which gives everyone access to the directory (under the default permissions everyone doesn't have write permissions). How do I keep this from happening?

I'm running Mandrake 8.2

you want to set the actual settings on the device itself.. like /dev/hda1 .........etc.

also if you have it auto mount from the /etc/fstab file, make sure the settings are ok there too.

use umask

u can try to use umask in the options section, for example if u want the permissions on drive /dev/hda1 to be 755 add umask=022 to the optins section of the line where the drive /dev/hda1 in mounted in fstab. I hope that was clear, sorry my english is poor
