[Samba] Removing account/passwd synchronization requirement

As I see it, you have (at least?) 2 options:

1) Set up Samba as a Domain Controller so that your XP machines can be
authenticated via the Samba server by joining the domain. The Samba DC
then holds the master user list.

2) I'm assuming in this case that you'd simply like to use a different
user name than the logged-in user to access shares, etc on the Samba
machine. In XP, under the "User Accounts" dialog off Control Panel,
there's a "Manage Passwords" option on the "Advanced" tab that lets you
set up a username/password combo when accessing a remote machine.
