Mounting cifs problem: Permission denied (But accessible through Places->Network)

Alright, I'm trying to download all files to my external network storage instead of my local harddisk. On windows I just connected to the smb share provided by the nas, the nas is running linux too.
The problem is this:
In fedora, I can access the harddisk by just accesing it through the Places->Network menu or smb://
However, to download something directly to it, it must be reachable for the applications and therefore I want to mount it. I create the mount directory /mnt/Remote/ and tried this:

mount.cifs // /mnt/Remote/ -o user=root,password=*,domain=*

the drive is mounted after that and I can create a new file on it, however, the problem is that applications can't write to it. This is because the nas is also using linux and as soon as I mount the drive, the owners are also mounted. If I create a file in the mounted drive, its also created on the harddisk, but its not created by my fedora user but either "nobody" or "root" which is not my account, therefore my fedora system doesn't have the right to write to it. If I unomount the drive again and access it through Places->Network, the permission "could not be determined" so its not blocking me. Changing files works again. The settings of the nas are hardcoded and can't be changed, therefore I have to fix my client or trick it in some way that it doesn't complain about the permission anymore.
It doesn't matter what user logs into the nas, the nas log always says "nobody" logged in.

Any ideas?

Probably too late to help you, but I ran into this problem yesterday and managed to fix it by mounting with the noperm option.

Not an ideal solution because other users are able to write to the share, although they must at least authenticated users, but it was the only way I was able to write to the My Documents, My Music, My etc., folders. Interestingly, I was able to write to other folders in my user's home directory without the noperm option, just not these specific folder.

Hopefully this will save someone else a little time...

I have the same problem right now and also used noperm. Through it I can read and write in the shared folder. But surprisingly, I can't delete and rename a file. It says, "Access denied."

My fstab entry goes like this:
//10.0.x.x/test_folder /mnt/NAS cifs user=xxxxxx,pass=xxxxxx,noperm,rw 0 0

Then I use a samba user for it.
