smbpasswd -add nobody opt

This will create the entry and you can then edit the username and replace
it with opt$ as well as inserting the :0080: field following the password

PS : I am planning to look at possibily adding a -machine option to
smbpasswd to generate these accounts tomorrow...unless soemone else had
their heart set on doing it ;)
