You have to configure two different ip-address for your interface (there is
support for this in the kernel - the interfaces are named eth0:0 ,eth0:1
,...). Then each nmbd has to have its own config-files, which includes
"socket address=<one if the virtual addresses>". Of course, each nmbd has to
use it's own virtual address.
