Samba cannot assosiate different username and password for each share
as well as Windows.

If you set as below,

    map to guest = bad user

    guest ok = yes

    guest ok = no

    guest ok = no

# "guest ok = no" is default.

you can access to the Samba box without username/password, list shares,
access into the "public-share" and are asked about username/password
when you try to access to "private-share". But once you input correct
username/password for the share, you always access to another shares
("another-private-share" in the example above) with the input
