Dolphin - how to get write access to a share

I'm a bit slow, just learned Dolphin had a network option that would display workgroup servers and their shares. Oddly I don't seem to have write access to these shares when I know that works from the command line via smbclient. Suggestions on what I might be overlooking?

As a secondary issue, I discovered this feature while trying to get smb4k to run. I've posted on their sourceforge home page that I can't get that to build under a slackware linux 14.1 distribution. I'd be interested in anyone who has done this successfully.

sorry should have had a little more detail. Yes I was at the same user level in both instances. I am the only user on my local network, I used it to allow some of my old machines to share data. The truth is that I am a slob and almost always work as root. Was root user when running smbclient and from Dolphin in Xwin.
