   I want to allow users only special PCs. As example:
   user x should be allowed to logon at PCs a and b and c
   but not at the other 50 PCs. 
   This should be done for a lot of users and PCs. 
   With lot of effort this could 
   be done in the startup-scipt for Win NT. But under 
   W9x I don't have any user information in the environnement.
   Is it possible to use some properties of samba
   to do such thing?
You could do it buy having a line in your smb.conf:
include = %U.conf

and then for a user named bob make a bob.conf file and put it in it:
hosts allow = pc1 pc2 pc3

I have no idea if this will work but it is a start.

You will need to disallow anonymous access.
