Re: [K12OSN] smbmount share into root filesystem/permissions error

I have had the same issue.  There is someone on here that is using AR liek
this, but I haven't gotten them to reply to me on how they got it done.
Mine is a Novell mount onto my LTSP but it is the same issue.  I haven't
gotten too much time to sit and work on it though so I don't have any
great info on it yet.  If you find something out please post it and I will
do the same.
