There are two cases:
1) you mounted the Linux remote filesystem with RO option
2) the user that mounts the filesystem doesn't have the write access on the mounted directory.

To exclude the second try "chmod 777 ." on the directory you mount on Linux box.
If this doesn't help check /etc/exports options on Linux box and mount options on NT box.

Consider also the possibility to install on your Linux Box the SAMBA package that allows disks and printers sharing between Linux and W32.

I have specifed the rw right and I took your suggestion and
changed the permissions on the directory to 777, the error message that I get when I try to write is "Data Error (cyclic redundancy check) 0 files copied" I tried all of your suggestions, I was wondering if you have ever seen this error message before or if you have any more suggestions. Thanks for
the input.

Have had this error too, long ago.
I found only one workaround to get rid of it:  stop and restart pcnfsd.
See the scripts in /etc/rc.d how to stop and restart pcnfsd, probably there is a bcnfsd too, may be you need to enable it.

I have not solved the problem yet, I restarted the pcnfsd and still no go. I am going to try to load Samba and see how that goes. I will keep you posted.
