No big deal.

# groupadd fulltango {creating group}
# useradd -g fulltango user1[2,3,..,20] {create users part of our group}
# passwd user1[2,3,..,20] {Assign normal Linux passwords}
# /usr/bin/smbpasswd -a user1[2,3,..,20] {Assigning SMB passwords}
# /usr/bin/smbpasswd -e user1[2,3,..,20] {Enable the SMB users}

Assign the same SMB password for the users user1 through user10. Assign different passwords of your choice for the users user11 through user20.
