Hi Rune,

I just want to provide a means to allow all users who use the machines on
the LAN to be able to login to *any* machine and have access to their Samba
share.  

As it is now, there is only local authentication for each machine on the LAN
(no Windows Domain here, only a workgroup) -- so if a user wants to be able
to use a computer other than what they normally use, an account needs to be
created for that user on the new machine, and then they will be able to
access their Samba share.  I want to allow any user to login to any machine,
and be able to access their Samba share.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

---
Matt
