A much easier trick is to use *container* networking with its own IP address
given to/used by exclusively by this container. This might require setting
up a bridge on host though.  Once this is done, any number of containers
can be run, including running a service (samba in this case) in the regular
root filesystem but with unique configuration (eg. I bind /etc/samba.$container
to /etc/samba, /var/lib/samba.$container to /var/lib/samba/ etc).
