As per my samba exprience you can have single userid to access the same
share from different computer.
> I have a samba server running on Linux (RedHat 9.0), with the security set
> to user and 3 valid user IDs. The clients are 3  PCs running on Windows XP
> (HomeEdition) and connected through a router. From the PCs running Windows
> I can see the localhost (Sambas Server), but for some reason one PC can

> 1.  Should every user log in with a different user ID to access the shared

> 2. Could there be another reason why only one PC can connect to the shared
