Samba mount, user/group IDs

Okay, here's my deal: I've got a Remote Box with Samba running, and a local box. the files on the remote box belong to tom/tom and apache/apache. (tom => user 500, on remote box). I've mounted the filesystem on the local box, and I actually don't have uid slot 500 occupied, so I seem them belonging to 500/500 and apache/apache, instead of belonging to whapts3/whapts3 (501/501), which I'd like. =b

I'm actually forwarding port 139 on localhost via SSH (do I need to forward other ports too?) The line from the Remote Box's /etc/fstab:
//localhost/Apache /home/whapts3/smb smbfs noauto,owner,user,username=tom,uid=501,gid=501

Most of the files in there belong to apache/apache, but there are a few tom/tom ones I'd prefer to retain. I'd also like the Samba user 'admin' to be able to read the files over Samba with the same permissions.

If there's a specific part of the fine manual I should read, which part is it?
