[Samba] winbind

We are in the process of implementing Linux-cum-samba in our NT environment. We are trying to integrate the security with winbind. Joined the NT domain, no problem. Can list the users and groups thru wbinbfo. Gave a uid and gid range to the nt users in smb.conf. made couple of changes in nsswitch as suggested by the documentation, password: files winbind and groups: files winbind.
It seems that this version of samba had already winbind integrated so that we didn't have to compile it again and we didn't do anything in the PAM area.

The permissions on the linux box map to:owner, group and everyone only. No more users/groups can be added but it seems you can amend this three entries. How can we implement the file and directory permissions with the same granularity as the NT, using samba and winbind, since there is no concept of local and global groups on the linux box? I am not a linux or unix expert, so any seemingly simple stuff could help in my case.

Any help is appreciated.


PS: We have downloaded all the relevant documentation, but they seem to be for earlier versions of linux and samba such as 7.1. Nothing specifically written for Linux 8.0 and samba 2.2.7.
