    Hi, I recently installed linux mandrake 10.1 in my server
    and there's a terminal computer in Windows XP.

    I declared 4 users in linux server: me,david,paul,angie

    I want to prevent paul and angie logging into the server
    computer and using it. I want them to use only the Windows XP
    terminal computer and log on to the server via network
    to let them access their files.

    (by the way, I'm a newbie in samba)

    Is it possible to have only me and david as linux users and
    paul,angie,me and david as samba users to prevent them
    from logging in my computer and access their files?

    Is there another solution in this way?

    Thanks a lot for your help!
    Roland
