Multiple personalities

I am trying to use samba 2.0.3 and gain "multiple personalities" from
one server.  Browse wise, I would like to see ftp and web.  Share wise,
I would like ftp to show only "incoming" and "outgoing" and web to show
"web".  I have played with "config file = ", cutting out pieces of the
below smb.conf and putting them into smb.conf.ftp and smb.conf.web but
it doesn't seem to be working.  I am close?  The below config works, but
the web admin doesn't want anyone getting confused by \\ftp\web or
\\web\incoming.  Any comments are more than welcome!

ps - the below config is working great, (minus the "config file ="), to
allow evil PC users access to the Unix ftp and web repositories without
giving them a Unix account!.

TIA :)
