That's an interesting way to go and I think it *would* work but my
original question was if it is possible for *samba* to distinguish OS
releases and allow/disallow computers then. Or rather I'm sure it is
possible to distuingish them but I just don't know if such config was
ever implemented.

Some SMB conversation option tweaking advise would be highly
