I've partly figured out how to mount it as root and give the user
permissions to write.
smbmount //nt_le/ericp$ /directory -o credentials=file,uid=epenne
I added the uid=epenne before but there was a space instead of a comma
and smbmount just ignored the uid flag.
I still am not allowed to mount the drive without having root
privileges. Can anybody help?
