What do you mean by "this or that"?

If you mean the ability to perform certain actions on a client, you can use
policies to accomplish this. Policies are automatically looked for by win
clients  in the netlogon share of samba.

If you mean the ability to control access to a share or files in a share,
unix groups and proper configuration of share definitions in smb.conf will
cover this.

If you mean the ability to control access to parts of the client file
systems/applications, other then for administrators, you can't do that yet.

I believe all the samba 2.x series have the same behaviour as I've outlined
