I did the following:
- create a unix group dedicated to those users who shall have admin
- change the primary group of the unix-user you want to become a
domain-admin to that group
- set "domain admin group = @<your admin group>" in smb.conf

when i now log in to my domain using samba 2.2.0 as DC, i am granted
full administrative privileges.
