	I use 'security=share' - which is the default. Thank you for
your mail! It made me look up some more things, and so I found out that
the [homes] shares may be connected to by everybody who knows one valid
username. This is not what you want, I suppose.
	The [bats] share is protected by 'valid users = @groupname'. To
connect to it, I must supply a valid username out of this (Unix) group
and its valid password.

	Now, as I know more, I'm afraid, I'm not...
