except by setting up multiple samba servers, or using:

file called /usr/local/samba/smb.conf


	include = /usr/local/samba/smb.conf.%m

file called /usr/local/samba/smb.conf.machine1

	password server = nt_machine1


the reason for this is that the first communication with the SMB server 
does not contain the username or any other useful info.

you could _maybe_ do it by NIS netgroup, resolved from the machine name.
