You can't remove them from an NT box. These are well known
groups and they don't show up in User Manager in any way.

And SYSTEM is the account, that all system processes run
under (unless specified differently)

Oh, and removing them from samba wont buy you anything,
because the user can simply click on the domain list box at
the top of the "add user to acl" dialog, choose the
machine, on which the files reside and choose them from
