Buddha...and Hinduism...

I have a question here.  Buddha is regarded by some sects of Hinduism as 
an incarnation of Visnu, or as a Hindu.  Then how was Buddha incorporated 
into Hinduism if Buddha's beliefs were contrary to Hinduism?  For example 
Buddhists frequently say that Buddha didn't believe in a Supreme Being.  
Yet he is considered a Supreme Being.  Also does anybody know which 
Upanisads are supposedly credited to Buddha, or his influence.  I think 
Sankaracharya used some of them to show Buddhists that they were really 
the same as Hindus.
