What do you mean by group mapping?  Could you explain it a bit more?

If you mean the mapping of Windows domain groups to UNIX groups. Like
getting all the groups that exist in a domain and put them into the
/etc/group file. Then the answer is yes. A new daemon called winbind does
this. It is included in recent Samba versions (I think starting from
version 2.2.2)

See the Samba HOWTO collection on the samba website (in documentation), it
contains a section about winbind
