Create a user on your Samba Box, create a share that is accessible to that
user, then use the username parameter so that whatever user the Windows
client sends, Samba will check the password against the user you created.

They hang the man and flog the woman
That steal the goose from off the common,
But let the greater villain loose
That steals the common from the goose.

I am using Samba "Version 2.2.3a-12 for Debian" on a Debian 3.0 system.
I have looked at lots of Samba documentation and have not been able to
find anything explaining what I need. I want to create a single directory
on my Samba server that is ok for any user (e.g. 'guest ok = yes'), but
is password protected. Meaning, I want a share that any user can access
as long as they have the password to that specific directory. I haven't
seen how to do this anywhere, so any assistance that you could offer
would be most appreciative. Thanks a lot!
