You will need to be more specific with what you want to do. Even though syntax is similar, these two policies act differently. Please repost and give us an idea of what speciffically you want to do; then we can help.

You might want to read the Samba 3 Howto & Reference guide. On some distro's it is in a samba.doc package. Or you can find it at the website. I don't know if the particular feature you want can be mapped to a samba share. Often, if you are a member of the Network Administrator's group and logged in, you can use the same policy tools from a windows machine to set policies.
Look in Chapter 26. System and Account Policies.
