Can anyone help me with the correct FSTAB entry to mount an SMB (Macintosh, actually) network share in FC2?

I'm using one that ends in dmask=777,fmask=777, 0 0

but FC2 still restricts permissions to a whole bunch of directories that I need to read and write to and can't (some can't read, others can't write!)

This command line works for me to allow access to an XP machine by any Linux user:

smbmount "//polarlaptop/Polar (C)" /mnt/polarlaptop -o username=root,password=pass,uid=myuid,dmask=0775,fmask=0775

Just exchange "myuid" for your username and that user should be able to access the share.

I don't think this is EXACTLY what you need to do but it might give you a pointer in the right direction.

I'll give that a try. I suspect there might be some kind of backward compatibility issue with the Mac's Samba server since I did get a "successful" mount using CIFS but then found the data that had been written to the mac was bad! So I will make another attempt with this syntax. Thanks!
