Looks like i'll have to write a PAM `:( 

Thanks for the input Joel. 


Just reading some more. I don't use passwords and .....

Well, man smb.conf says that modern clients like windows95 automatically
supply a user name, that is, the user name with which you logged into
windows, so, I am not sure what you can do to force windows to ask for
a user name.
