The best way to describe this is to say: in the smb.conf you put a line: winbind
gid = 10000-20000  These are the groups ID's that winbind can use when
automatically adding them to your linux box.  If you need more info, check the
winbind whitepaper at www.samba.org, or the winbind man page.

Of course, getting winbind and getting it to work is another story.  CVS of
HEAD nor 2.2 work, and I had to grab it by making it from the TNG CVS(Please fix
this, its a make problem).

Good Luck,
