getsid.exe tells me :
The SID for account BIO-LAB\Modem_Users is

Now, I have to ask, which RID (of the last four) should be mentioned in the
smb.conf file ?
I have checked winnt.h and Modem_Users are not mentioned, I don't
understand why there are four RIDs after the S-1-5-21- bit. The MS
Developer site does not seem to list anything, could it be that these
numbers are madeup on the fly and therefore will be different on every
system ?
