You can try updateng the source.  Luke has just introduced some new
functions ( lsalookupsid() ), or you can make the user copy the 
files to a samba share where you can configure ownership on the 
unix side of things.  Sorry but this is one area where the code 
is almost there but still a few things to figure out.:\
