[Samba] Samba can't find my @groups

I've installed Samba as a PDC and followed all
documentations I've found helpful on the internet!

It looks like everything runs nicely now on my
Debian server with Linux 2.4.21 and Samba 3.0beta1
except when it comes to groups.

I have i.e. the following share:
        path = /home/share/learning
        write list = @personal, @admin, @installer
        force group = @personal
        force create mode = 0664
        force directory mode = 0775

The groups are added to my /etc/group and they should
be ok. I've also tried to add them using the net command:

$ net groupmap list
System Operators (S-1-5-32-549) -> admin
Replicators (S-1-5-32-552) -> daemon
Guests (S-1-5-32-546) -> -1

Backup Operators (S-1-5-32-551) -> bin
Users (S-1-5-32-545) -> elev

And the /etc/group looks like this:

If I try to connect using the smbclient I get
the respons:
"tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_GROUP"

Here is some of the logs of the log.smbd.

I'm not using LDAP or the like, only plain unix
password and group files. Maybe I should?

Do anyone know what I am doing wrong? If you'd
want to see my whole smb.conf I've temporarly
added it here:

     [x] icq - 496723     [x] url - fobie.net
