I have a much easier related question. I have 3 UNIX users (testa, testb, testc) which are 
all in the UNIX group 'test'. If I use 'smbpasswd -a' on each of the users to add them to 
samba, can i use 'DOMAIN\test' for permissions somewhere in the domain and have it refer 
to testa, testb, and testc? Does this not work? Is it more difficult that this?
