samba and vmware

Is anyone using vmware for linux in conjunction with samba? I'd like to setup
all of my linux workstations to be able to run NT4 in a virtual machine, and
connect to my samba server. Ideally, this would be done by installing a single
image of NT4 onto a virtual machine, and copying it to all the workstations. I
forsee a problem, though, since the machine name and ID will also be
duplicated, and thus samba would see identical machine names and IDs from
different IP addresses. Can samba handle this? Or is this doomed to failure?
