i have this running on several servers, this was not a big problem.
i have for each server a own virtual interface (eth0:0, eth0:1) and all
samba running on port 139.
the options i added to the different smb.conf was:
interfaces = 192.168.1.4/255.255.25.0
bind interfaces only = yes
socket address = 192.168.1.4
i used it until now twice, once for 2.0.7 (production-server), and a tng
and 2.2.x for testing on one machine.
and last week on a suse 7.3 with samba 2.2.3a and samba-2.2.4pre running
on one machine (the 2.2.4pre was for w2k profiles)
