[Samba] clients logout and client creating users

Two questions, only slightly related to SAMBA :

1) when I have logged into my Samba server (rh9) from
a W2K or XP 
client, how can I log out again so that I can log in
as someone else. I 
know logging out of W2K/XP will work, but I would like
to log out of the 
SAMBA server w/o logging out of W2K/XP. My Mac OS X
client has an 
'eject' button which I can use - something similar to
that is what I am 

2) We have a W2K server as PDC. The admin for that m/c
has mentioned 
that it is always a chore to create users each term
when new students 
arrive (we're a small school). He noticed how easily I
created users on 
our RH9 box, which also runs SAMBA in the same domain
as a file server. 
Is there a way I can use the scripting capabilities of
the RH9 box 
(perl, for example) to create users on the W2K PDC?
