[SAMBA] Allow access to a directory only to a single user


Hi everyone!
I have a file server on my network. It is accessed mainly by linux machines throught NFS, but sometimes I need to access it from windows, and I managed to get Samba up and running with only one share with no password, which is what I want.
My users have their "private" folders which are just chmodded 700, and under NFS it works fine, but on samba I get, of course, access denied.
How can I configure samba so that it asks a password to access those directory? They can become separate shares, and have their own username and passwords (not the ones in /etc/passwd in the server), I don't care.

Any advices?

Thanks in advance,
Luca
