Although I have never tried it, it should be possible by configuring  
Samba for PAM authentication  
and using an appropriate PAM module, such as  

Even if PAM P11 is not ready for Samba use, it shouldn't be too  
difficult (and take this with a grain of salt, given that PAM is  
mystic per se :-) to produce a new PAM-Samba-Smartcard by "merging"  
PAM P11 and one of the PAM modules included in Samba currently (PAM  
password, PAM Winbind, etc).
