2. Does every user with acces to the Samba share have to have an account on the machine proper or can this be accomplished within Samba?

no - samba requires both a samba and a unix account

(tangential question caused by answer)
Craig,
I (used to) understand that samba _has_ to have a _Unix_account_ on the machine to map the samba user too, but does samba now require an explicit samba account as well as a system user? i.e., if I have a Unix account 'sucker' and if that is my MS user name too, then samba should just map through to the Unix account and password right?
