	Hi All,

	Some problems. Please send comments.
	I'm using samba2.0.0, on debian 2.1 (frozen) as PDC.

On the samba2.0.0 PDC everything goes ok, like user validation from w95
and wkst 4 sp3, with roaming profiles, printing, etc. Also the
workstations recognize the domain account root as being part of Domain
Admins (after domain admin user\group = root) and let only this account
perform administration tasks on them. Good work !    :-)

	The problem is:
	If you try to set permissions to a local file in a workstation via
'properties', 'security','file permissions', then when you click 'add'
to add a user to the list two things happen:
	-if you are a regular user you get the marvellous Dr Watson reporting
an access violation.
	- if you are domain root then you get a not so good list (with some
garbage) in the groups part, but you manage to get the user list. Other
times: Dr Watson strikes back !

	I only have two lines in smb.conf concerning this:
	domain admin users = root
	domain admin group = root

	Is this a going on work or should it perform ok ? Any hints ?

	Thanks. Ciao,
