We had a big discussion of this topic last week on the samba-technical
mailing list.  It appears that at this point in time, what you want to
do is not supported by Samba itself.  For that matter, Windows NT/2000
Server does not have a provision for this. You can setup a list of
workstations that a user is allowed to login from on a Windows NT/2000
Server - but you cannot restrict concurrent logons from those
workstations.  Netware is the only PC-based NOS that I know of that has
a provision for doing that.

Anyway, the consensus was that this is one of several features that
should be focused on after the impending Samba 3.0 release is complete.
