I was able to mount a windows drive on a linux server using:
 mount -t cifs -v '\\' /99 -o username=xxxx,password=xxxx,ver=1,rw,uid=2,gid=2

For some reason after mount i only have red permission to the folder.

I need to be able to mount a folder from a 2003 server on two linux server and give them the ability to write to that folder so the app on the server can get to it.

Check the sharing/security configuration on the windows server to make sure you have granted read/write to the user.
Check the security event log on the server.
