Update to my eariler message.

I am running Samba 2.2.3a and can not copy a SAMBA profile to a PC cleint also
the domain controler is a windows 2000 box.
I  think the problem is that the users profile needs system/admin permissions, 
but when I try added these users to the samba drive I get the following error:

[2002/04/17 12:30:59, 0] smbd/posix_acls.c:create_canon_ace_lists(762)
  create_canon_ace_lists: unable to map SID 
S-1-5-21-1984182827-583073959-8547516-3573 to uid or gid.
I have tried to add a users.map but with out any luck

% cat users.map
andrew = Administrator
andrew = DOMAIN\Administrator
andrew = S-1-5-21-1984182827-583073959-8547516-2095
