  This is starting to make sense.  Thanks for the anwsers John and Andrew.
 One further clarification.  From the manpages it discusses %L being "what
the client calls you" so does this mean that, for example clients with
Windows and UNIX accounts would go to \\PRIVATE and windows-only users
would go to \\PUBLIC?  If so, then would I have 3 config files?  One
that's a "master" setup and then the include that pulls in,
/etc/samba/smb.conf.PUBLIC or /etc/samba/smb.conf.PRIVATE?  Also, what's
the preferred/best mechanism for making both of those appear?  Or am I way
off base?  I don't see anything in the Samba 3 docs about virtual servers
(or am I missing it under another name?)

  Thanks for the continued help!
