Multiple domains under samba


I'd like to separate the types of users on my network into appropriate domains. One domain for authenticating machines, one for shared accounts in Laboratories and one for everyone else's personal accounts.

I'm using samba 3 with everything in the CHEMINSTLAB domain and the single user list is getting very big (that is hard to find a single name in).



So, can a single instance of samba administer several domains?

Or can I have several instances of samba on the one server looking after a domain each?

And how can it be done (if at all).

bye.

AFAIK one machine can only act as one DOMAIN be it a windows system or a linux system.
