This kind of functionality is one of the many features of running a 
Windows Domain. With a DC in the mix, and every user a member of the 
domain, you only need to add the 'Domain Users' group to the 'Power 
Users' group on each workstation to accomplish this... then you can 
control which user can access which machine (by default, all users can 
access all mnachines).

Unfortunatley I know of no way to provide this functionality without 
using Samba as a full blown PDC...
