Using Samba (2nd edition) discusses using the "interfaces" network 
configuration option, along with "hosts allow", "hosts deny", etc, to 
provide support of multiple interfaces.  The examples cited only discuss the 
scenario in which the interfaces are on different subnets.

What about the case in which the interfaces of a multi-homed systems are on 
the same subnet?  Can Samba work in this configuration?  The book 
Understanding CIFS by Chris Hertel talks about NetBIOS name conflicts in 
this scenario (same name mapping to multiple IP addresses).
