security = user question

In our environment, we would like to map two drives to a
Samba server, each as a different user.

For instance, I'm user "vince", but many of us also
work as user "developer" in a special directory.
Thus we would like to make the following connections:

    F:  maps to \\sambaServer\\homes		user: vince
    G:  maps to \\sambaServer\\developer	user: developer
I can do this if in smb.conf,

    security = share
but I don't seem to be able to when,

    security = user
Is this true?

(I need "security = user" to get encrypted passwords.)
