[Samba] One SAMBA Server, two networks.

    I am making some changes to our network to split the front office 
and back office onto two seperate subnets, but need to keep the same 
Samba server in place serving both subnets.

    What I am intending to do is install an additional network card into 
the server and address this new card for the new subnet. What I am 
looking to do is properly broadcast the server's samba 
status/availability across both networks and properly serve files/domain 
controller data across both subnets.

    To do this, I intend to duplicate all the entries in the lmhosts 
file in /etc/samba with the only difference being the network that the 
server is broadcasting on.

    Will this work, or is this more complicated then I am currently seeing?
