I think you can accomplish this with the `netbios aliases': set up
several aliases for the same Unix machine, and get each home directory
from a different one.  That may be the best you can do.

(The alternative is to set up multiple IP addresses on the machine and
refer to those when you connect.  Or even use multiple Sambae.)
