No, MS removed it.

I don't know why we even have that limit, but yes, that's your only
option.  You will suffer some nasty performance issues however, as Samba
has to change user between different requests (rather than the OS just
scheduling a new process).

You could consider setting up a (very large) number of 'netbios
alias'es, and get each user to connect to a different one - Win2k will
make separate connections to each.
