Guest shares query

Hello, I've coded the following in our smb.conf file (security = share coded
in the [global] section) and this works fine where users can access the
share without a password :-


        comment = Tech support directory

        path = /information

        guest only = Yes

        guest ok = Yes

        guest account = nobody

        writable = no

        browsable = no     

Is it possible somehow to restrict access to this share to say three users
only (say tom, dick and harry) but still allowing the three users to logon
without a password being prompted for?

I'm running Samba versions  3.0.14a and 2.0.5.a  both on Sun Solaris8 Unix
