OK. You mean having different smbpasswd files for each
instance. Your right you need to samba installations
with different install paths.

In my opinion we really need some configuration options
to have these configuration files reside in different
positions in the file system, obsoleting necessity to
recompile samba if we wish to have two instances of samba

There is only on point to mention: it may be a security
hazard to have an configuration option for smbpasswd
making it more easy to gain access to something you
should not have to...
