Don't know what ypu mean exactly with "'m starting to setup users
on the".
But you need unix accounts for every user. And if you use
encrypted passwords (encrypt passwords = yes in your smb.conf)
you must the users also the smbpasswd-file. You can do this with
the "smbpasswd" programm.(smbpasswd -a username)
