fstab mounting of suse 9.1 to mandrake

Recommended Posts

In the past I have managed to mount samba drives across my network at home using something similar to this in fstab and mounting 'as root'


// /home/name/pylori smbfs gid=users,exec,rw,uid=1000 0 0


I have recently updated and changed my system and when I mount the drive I get a user id of 501 that relates to the Mandrake server that I am running th local uid is 1000. I have tried various other solutions posted on the internet all seem to mount fine but not as uid 1000 so when I try to create directories I get permission denied.


-- client (suse 9.2)


@linux:~> id

uid=1000(usrname) gid=100(users) groups=14(uucp),16(dialout),17(audio),33(video),42(trusted),65(sshd),100(users)


-- server (mandrake 9.2?)


uid=501(usrname) gid=501(usernamr) groups=501(roger),4(adm),10(wheel),101(rpm),102(xgrp),103(ntools),104(ctools)



Any Ideas what I am doing wrong
