I don't think "authentication" can be set up on a share-by-share basis, 
only "permissions" to shares.  Look at the smb.conf man page under the 
"security" parameter:


As far as a share goes, something like this:

         comment = Privilege Share
         path = /usr/local/privilege
         read only = no
         writeable = yes
         valid users = +priv_users
         create mask = 0660
         directory mask = 0770

Only users in the group "priv_users" will be able to access the share.

Hope this helps.
