No offense but LOL same problem I had with Linux clients. Here is what I did;
The only way I got this to work is add the mount entry to fstab.. auto-mount would not work right it would end up hanging the Linux client.
//ethans27/SAN1 /mnt/SAN1 cifs user,uid=500,rw,suid,username=nobody,password=nobody 0 0
BTW I'm forcing the use of a specific user in my smb.conf file. I see you have force group but you may have to include the force users=.
One irritating thing I come to find out is the directoru perms have to coexist with whats in your smb.conf.
[root at ethan ~]# rpm -q samba
