It is possible to run 2 SAMBA daemons on different NICs (even 1 ream NIC
and a virtual one.) It is however not easy. 

Spend $400 buy a PC.
or use network logon to re-map the required shares
or in the longer term  look at Xen for multiple virtual machines
You can not have 2 netbios names for the same IP address
