Mounting Windows share

I also had problems mounting a samba share using CIFS. I changed the 
smbmnt and related commands to suid root but this was not the correct 
approach. What I had to do was to assure that the chosen mount point was 
owned by myself (only user on this system) and removing the suid bits. 
This works OK.

I have only a problem when my system would be used by more users, what 
should the mount point have as ownership?
