Hi Matthew,
Thanks for the response. What I'm trying to do is fairly similar to this, but not exactly the same thing. I need something like:
On Windows machine ABC:
\\net use X: \\servername\sharename /user:domainname\username
On Windows machine XYZ:

\\net use X: \\servername\sharename /user:otherdomainname\username
I.e. I was hoping that the same Samba server, could "service" multiple Windows workgroups. I think you've answered my question already, i.e. that this is not possible, and we would need a 2nd Samba server to service the user accounts on the 2nd windows workgroup. Is this the case?
