Privileges NT and Samba

On an NT workstation, a user ID requires at least 'Power User' privileges to
change time. Administrator privileges would also work, but you wouldn't want
to give every user admin privileges unless you have a death wish (imho).

Anyway, from the <Start> button, select Programs - Administrative Tools -
User Manager. Select the user, click on Groups, select Power User from the
right side, click on Add, then OK a couple of times. There's probably also a
policy editor method of doing this for a group.

I remember someone had a list in a previous mail.
You should find it in the list archives.
