This maps the name "administrator" to the name "root".

Which Samba version do you use?

Samba 2.0.X:

domain admin group = @admingroup  <== this is a unix group, any user in this
group is a administrator

Samba TNG:

have a look at the FAQ at www.kneschke.de/ ..... This should work.
With Samba TNG you should be able to administrat your windows nt box, if log
in as root.
