If you're using a recent samba (samba3) you can create a unix group
and map that unix group to a domain group with smbgroupedit

if you're using samba2 you only have access to Domain Users and Domain
Admins (which you can map to unix groups with smb.conf parameters)

this is a FAQ.
Next time you could check the list archives at marc.theaimsgroup.com or
google lists.samba.org instead of waiting for somebody to reply...

good luck!
