i have no write writing permission on the fileserver, the user has all priviliges. Its working fine with windows! There i can write, but on my ubuntu 10.10 only reading. i've mounted the drive with this command in my fstab:

// /media/Austausch cifs username=markey,password=ThePassword  0 0

Why iam not allowed to write?

Append your uid and gid to the mount options:

// /media/Austausch cifs username=markey,password=ThePassword,uid=<x>,gid=<y>  0 0

Type id to check your id.
