I want to have a single samba server with file shares under multiple server

eg:   	\\fileserver\share

All being the same physical machine, the idea being that as the system
expands these can be moved 
onto separate machines as demand increases without having to change all the

I can't find any information about setting multiple netbios names in samba.

( I suppose I could associate different IP addresses with the same network
card on a single machine and run a 
separate copy of samba for each IP address. )
