Permissions and smbfs mounts

I'm having some permissions issues with mount and smbfs that don't appear to be solved by anything I can find. I'm trying to mount a share so all users can access it from /mnt/samba. My command is

mount -t smbfs -o uid=root,gid=100,fmask=644,dmask=755,rw,username="Paul" //Jupiter/Media /mnt/samba

However, when I run that, the mount point ends up being locked out from everyone, even root, and "ls -l" doesn't even list the mount point. umount will make the mount point appear again. The mount point's permissions are set to 777.

smbmount //Jupiter/Media /mnt/samba
and make sure the share is public in smb.conf
comment = media
path = /mnt/samba
read only = no
public = yes

No dice. I think this install is just messed up; 'less' and the man pages don't even work. Thanks for the help though
