Permissions: Windows share accessed by Samba

I have a SAN that is running Windows 2003 server.  It is shared out fine, and i can connect to the share without issues from our Red Hat Linux web server.  The only problem is that I cannot assign permissions to different folders for write access.

I need to write files to the SAN from our Linux webserver.  Is it possible to assign linux style permissions on a windows share?  

here is the command I use to map the windows share in linux.

mount -t smb -o 'username=windowsuser,password=widnowspass' //blue/ws /home/ws

thanks

i figured it out ..

the command needed to be ...

smbmount //blue/ws /home/ws -o uid=99,password=password

where uid=99 is the userid for the 'nobody' user.
