I fixed it myself: had changed user-groups manually, but not
consequently in all files. Now this message no longer occures,

I did the whole procedure again, watching the logfiles and found Linux
identifying my users 'win' and 'administrator' correctly. I was not
surprised to see that this user don't have their well-known own desktop
(I've written about that in another mail some days ago). The problem is,
I have no administrator's account to my domain. The workstation's admin
is not able to grant the domain user profiles (which are still on my
disk) to the new users. They are annouced as 'unknown' and cannot be
copied. How I hate this foggy Windows-stuff!!
