>From what I remember, the permissions and uid/gid for the whole mount
are both set as mount time.  You can add "fmask=0664,dmask=0775"
(insert your own permissions after the '=' signs) line to the smb line
of you fstab, and it will make the files and directories of the mount
0664 and 0775, respectively.  Hope that helps.
