This feature (viewing from win9x user-level the list of users from
samba) is not yet implemented in samba2.0.x, let alone 1.9.x.

You can:
1) use win9x in share-level (leave samba in user-level though)
2) use a workaround consisting in adding registry settings by hand to
specify users which are allowed to access your shares in user-level,
3) try samba-2.1 prealpha, but be prepared.. this is the development
branch, so you may get some benefits and some problems too.
