Yes, it mounted with the correct owner and user.

Ahhhhhh, this may be my problem. I was confused and was thinking that the
use of the 'guest' directive on the smbmount command line was specifying the
guest account on the win2k box, not on my Linux/samba server!!! My guest
account directive in smb.conf is still commented out which I think means it
is using the user 'nobody'. I'll check that. It appears to sort of work.
Here is what the smbmount command gives me:
