ntdom faq outdate?

I was trying to work out of 'How do I configure an account as a domain
administrator?' from the faq


'domain group map' works for me, but not either 'domain user map' or
'local group map'.  Have these two parameters gone away, too?


Let me elaborate a bit more on what I mean above:

I presume users in the adm group of the localgroup.map would have the
priviledge to perform administrative tasks on a client machine (local
domain) when they have valid user accounts on that workstation when I
have done the following:

Add a line to the [global] section of smb.conf file: 

	local group map = /usr/local/samba/lib/localgroup.map

Add a line to the file /usr/local/samba/lib/localgroup:


where localadm is a group of users (to-be-local administrators)
specified in the /etc/group file 


I presume 'root' will become a domain administrator or I can log into a
NT-PDC domain as 'administrator' when I have done the following:

Add this line to the [global] section of smb.conf file

	domain user map = /usr/local/samba/lib/domainuser.map

Add this line to the file /usr/local/samba/lib/domainuser.map:

	root-Administrator administrator admin

Add a samba account for root:

	smbpasswd -a root


If my thinkings are totally wrong, sorry to bother you and please
correct me.
