We're running slackware, where every user automagically belongs to the
group 'users'. I think that redhat creates a group for every user, so in
that environment you would be looking up the ladder of hacking :)

Have a look at 'cat /etc/passwd | cut -d ":" -f 4', are the numbers all
the same? If so, you have all users in one group. Else... Sorry..

I haven't gotten them to show in usrmgr either.. sorry. But I'm able to
use the name 'DOMAIN\Domain Users' when setting acl's and policies. Works
fine, and is enough for us. No need for actually viewing the content of
the group yet.
