FSTAB from FreeBSD samba to Fedora 5

Hi, just got a little problem....

on my FreeBSD server I share a drive with samba with that config... :
   comment = Downloaded stuff
   path = /wd250/Downloads
   valid users = mrwolf
   public = no
   writable = yes
   printable = no
   create mask = 0755
and in my fstab of my fedora 5 i got:
//fserv/Downloads       /fserv/Downloads        cifs    rw,credentials=/etc/smb-credentials     2       2
in my credentials file I log as "mrwolf"

the mask is good... 755 but the file owner is at 1001 and not "mrwolf"
on my FreeBSD box 1001 is the userid of "mrwolf"
so only the root of Fedora can write on the share folder

permissions of my mounted folder:
File Owner: 1001
File group: root
Owner: 7
Group: 5
Other: 5

any hint to make the file owner at "mrwolf" ?
I already tryed chown and chmod but can't change it

thanks for all
