[Samba] Problem with user ids on remote and local machines

I have a small network with XP/linux workstations

On one Linux box there is a user which is the same as the user on the
samba server 

However when the user creates a file on the share the permissions are
not those of the user, but those of the usr_id of the user on the server

user creates file on share test.doc

user is 503 on local machine
user is 504 on remote machine

ownership is 504 504 not user

anyone any ideas
