[Samba] - Win2k local groups and domain groups on linux PDC

I am currently running Samba 2.2.4 on a RH 7.1 box acting as a PDC with two Win2k test clients attaching to it.  Users authenticate to the PDC via an LDAP server running on the PDC and that works ok.  I can also join the domain with no problems.  What I am trying to accomplish is to have a domain user or better yet a group of domain users, be able to log into the win2k box and have the linux domain group they belong to be able to be part of one of the Win2k local groups so they can have administrative privileges right off the bat without having to add several domain users to a win2k local group.  

What I've encountered is that when I edit the Administrators local group or any other group on the win2k box and want to add a domain group such as @admin, none of the domain groups even show up in the list.  It only lists domain users.  So my question is.... is there anyway to get the groups to populate in this list also????  Sure would be nice.

If anyone can help me out with fixing this or somewhat pointing me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.
