Windows sharing permissions

There have been other posts about this before, but none of their answers seemed to work for me, or had examples that were relevant, so I'm sorry that this is sort of a repeat post.

I have a few NFS shares on a Windows 2000 Professional box which I am mounting in RedHat 7.3 to expose to my ftp.

The Windows 2000's machine is Casper, and the linux machine is Hobbes. Cute, eh? Here is an excerpt of my fstab:

//casper/ftpuploads     /var/ftp/uploads        smbfs   username=airborne,password=mypassword,umask=000 0 0
That share in Windows 2000 has full access (read, write, full access) given to "Everyone" and "airborne" is an administrator on that machine.

But nonetheless, my linux "airborne" user can't write files to that share. The superuser can, but that's pointless because ftp users aren't superusers :-\

As you can see, I took the advice of previous posts and put the umask=000 on there, but I don't know if I did it right, or if it even applies. Here is what that directory looks like on the linux box:

drwxr-xr-x    1 root         4.0k Oct 12 01:21 uploads
Clearly only the owner has write access. What can I do?
