How do you get the GID numbers to resolve to the domain names? i am having
an issue - when I type groups jfountain, i get all numbers. I need them to
be names.

Why not?  It does not affect whether or not my NT user gets matched to a
UNIX UID and GID (username.map does that part for me),  but for files
created by users with no corresponding UNIX account,  it makes the domain
username show up on an "ls -l" minus the domain prefix so I can see who owns
the file,  otherwise,  ls -l shows a truncated version of
DOMAINNAMEseparatorUSERNAME,  and I can't tell who owns anything ...  

What is the purpose of the parameter,  and why is it a bad idea to use it?
