That is a possibility. Or, Mandrake's mount command has been patched so
that it supports the fmask and dmask options. I'm not sure. Or, it's a
special mount program that comes with the samba distribution. Perhaps you
should download samba and see if they have a different mount program, or a
patch for the mount program from the util-linux package.
