m a PC

I am trying to simulate functionality that was provided by Reflection NFS.
With this product a user can connect to two shares on the same server with
different user authentication.
I have tried to use Samba to achieve the same effect with no success.
If I try the following :
net use X: \\server\share1 <\\server\share1> /user:user1
net use Y: \\server\share2 <\\server\share2> /user:user2
When mapping the second drive I get the error message
'The credentials supplied conflict with an existing set of credentials'
I understand this is a limitation imposed by Windows NT.
So I have tried to use the 'force user' option on each of the two shares.
force user = user1
path = /usr/data1
force user = user2
path = /usr/data2
When I map the second share on the client it appears to force the user from
the first mapping not the second.
Any ideas how I can get around this.
Samba version : 2.2.2
Platform : Solaris (SPARC)
