	I want to setup SAMBA so that it will allow only a list of windows' users to access one share drive [vbs]. Here are the restrictions:
1- Can't attach Samba to windows domain controller.
2- users should not enter any further password to access files on the share service. 
	I have created common account (vbsuser) but how to limit the users. Here is the entries on my smb.conf. Are there any parameters needed or to be changed. Thanks,



encrypt passwords = yes
security = user
map to guest = Bad User
guest account = vbsuser
password level = 0
null passwords = yes

comment = portal development
   browseable = yes
   path = /export/vbs
   public = yes
   guest only = yes
   guest ok = yes
   writable = yes
   only user = no
   force group = caesd
   force create mode = 0770
   force directory mode = 0770
