include parameters let you insert text into your smb.conf just as if they
had been typed in. So, don't put [global] into your include file!
You must make the file security.Win95

%m is the netbios name of the client, %I is the ip of the client. %a returns
the OS of the calling client.

Samba generates a lot of information about itself and the client whenever
a client connects. These can be accessed by your smb.conf
In the book that comes with the SWAT GUI, see sections 4.3 and 4.1.2.
(Actually, I would read the whole thing, if I had time.)

I posted a smb.conf entry and a script to allow users to see all these
variables several days ago. 
If you can, check old posts from 13 Sep. It was called: 
Script for capturing variables
