Electrical question re: ceiling fan replacement

I am replacing a noisy bathroom ceiling fan/heater unit. On removing my old unit I discovered that the power for the two wall switches is run up to the fan and is labeled "hot feed". I took pictures before removing the old unit and it is clear that the black wires from the "hot feed" and both wall switches are joined together with a wire nut. My new unit is a Panasonic FV-11VH2 model. It has a set of black/white wires for the heater and another set for the fan. My question is how to properly connect the three white wires from the hot feed and the 2 wall switches to the heater and blower wires. Thanks for any advice you can give me.

Pictures

Of course. File IMG 2055 is a photo of the original wiring. 2056 is a photo of the wires in the ceiling with the old unit removed. Note that the yellow wire is the one marked "Hot Feed". The other two wires go to the wall switches. 2057 is just a shot of the new unit's wires. Hope this helps. Thanks.

Connect the black wire of the yellow cable to the two whites of the white cables.
Those two white wires should be marked or taped black at both ends.
Connect the white wire of the yellow cable to both fan and heat white wires.
The two remaining black wires go to one each of the fan and heat black wires.
All ground are connected together.
