We've got users logged into Win95 with one username, and they need to log
into samba using a different username....
of course if they try to map to their home directory, samba will use the
current username, which doesn't match, and therefore, password invalid.

How can I specify username in the mapping?  
\\server\homedir <then somehow a username>
I know there's a way in Totalnet by Syntax...

(BTW- I know they can change their windows logon, but they need to be
logged into a netware server also, using a different name)
