remote linux share permission issue


I am running Slackware 10.2. I have been trying to mount a remote share in another Slackware box in our university network. Finally after much of fiddling I have managed to do so but I do not have full access to the remote share . When I access the same share form a windows machine (as a user) I have full access. When I access the share as a root(from my Slackware box) I have more access but I cannot delete most of stuff.
The line in fstab that mounts the share looks like this:

//serverIP/share /mountingpoint smbfs owner,user,rw,username=myUserName 0 0

I have mount the share as a user (not as a root) and nothing changed. I have tried to mount my shares in another unix/linux boxes and outcome was the same.

Please help.

Thanks a lot for your time and attention.

Since you are using smbfs instead of cifs, you may need to use an option like uid=,fmask=,dmask= to control the ownership and permissions of the files mounted. Do you have cifs support? If the server has support for the unix extensions, you will have better control, and it would work more like a local drive.
