read-only across network problem

When I edit any text document that sits on a server (wiondows or solaris)in gedit and try to save it

Could not save the file /mnt/casi/Casi/test.txt.


Strange thing is I can delete the file and I can rename it from the linux machine. It is not checked as read-only in the permissions dialogue.

Is this strange or what?

I am running Fedora Core9.

Anybody got any ideas?

Interestingly I can edit and save files normally in open office writer. The problem seems to be gedit specific.
