Actually, if yoyo is connecting to the samba server already, NT will refuse
to auth as a different user to that computer name.  The solution is to add a
second netbios name, and connect to that computer name as yoyo.

I keep one around just for that purpose, if you only have one samba server,
you can name something like "admin" or somesuch, and your users shouldn't touch it.
