Removal of NT Builtin Groups

I don't want to remove them from an NT box, I want to remove them from being presented when accessing my SAMBA server. I do not want the user to have those groups as a choice for assigning user & group privileges. I only want the groups defined on the SAMBA box (for now) which does not have these groups defined.
