      Frenchy, Thank you so much. I had just overlooked "uid" and "gid"
      part in Bharat's response. Since I had turned off guest account
      through linksys interface. I used uid=2000 (whih is id for my mostly
      used user) and now I can write/update/delete on my ntfs partition
      using both telnet and samab.
