	security = share

	username = user1,user2
	force user = user2
	read list = user1
	write list = user2

should just about do it.  Now just give out the password for 
user1 and user2 depending upon access requirements.  Note that you will 
also have to play with file permissions.  I'll leave that as an exercise 
for the reader.
