I usually use something like:

mount -t smbfs -o username=student,password=abc123,uid=unixuid,gid=unixgid,umask=002 //sharename/Students /S-Drive

where username/password correspond to the Win2k user, uid/gid correspond
to the Linux user/group, and umask corresponds to the umask, giving the
uid user and gid group 775 access to the system.
