NTW 4.0 Workstation Admin Rights

Hi All,

Environment: Samba 2.0.7 (compiled w/gcc)
	     Sun Sparc Solaris
             WinNT 4.0 "workstations"

I need to set up individual users with NTW "Administrator" rights so
that log-on batch files executed on their behalf can do things like
"net time \\Server /yes /set", "route add ..." and other Admin'y
things.  (At least I *think* I do.)  But I do *not* want to give them
wide-open permissions to the domain itself.

I *tried* doing it by logging on to NTW as "Administrator", with the
log-on "domain" set to the workstation itself, and giving a user
"Administrator" rights, but when the user logs on to the domain:  no
workstation admin. rights.

I *suspect* something must be done at the "domain" level, but the
instructions in the "Samba NT domain FAQ" don't work.  Nor have I
been able to unearth any other clues.  (Tho I'm slogging thru the
archives for the mailing list even now.)

Can somebody please lend me a clue? :-)
