        adduser is a perl script in 4.x. You can edit the file to allow
        '$' in the user name. Or further hack it so that it knows that
        any name that ends in '$' is a samba machine name and have it
        execute the correct smbpasswd command as well.
        
        
        A quick visit to an active irc channel should get you any help
        you need. (it did me a long time ago.)
        
        good luck,
