If you're running samba 2.0 Beta x, the domain admin users is still the
way to go.

If you're running the head cvs branch, it's another story.

To sum up in when the samba server is a PDC:

        domain user map = /usr/local/samba/lib/
        domain group map = /usr/local/samba/lib/ contains the mapping between the NT users and their
equivalent on Unix:

[root at doubleface lib]# cat 
root    administrator

     ^^^-> a tab or an '=' sign should work. contains the mapping between the NT domain groups and the
Unix groups

[root at doubleface lib]# cat 
wheel    "Domain Admins"

     ^^^-> a tab or an '=' sign should work.

'wheel' must be in /etc/group. All the Unix users who are in the 'wheel'
unix group will be domain admins on the NT side.
