[Samba] Power Users - Is it possible?

$%#@&^% I forgot to delete the profile.  It works.  Now I should be able
to make a new "Domain Power Users" group with "net groupmap add".  How
does one find a new sid or can I just increment the last number used
like so:

[root at owl profiles]# net groupmap list
System Operators (S-1-5-32-549) -> -1
Domain Guests (S-1-5-21-1135672234-1853056381-2991119365-514) -> -1
Replicators (S-1-5-32-552) -> -1
Guests (S-1-5-32-546) -> -1
Power Users (S-1-5-32-547) -> -1
Print Operators (S-1-5-32-550) -> -1
Domain Users (S-1-5-21-1135672234-1853056381-2991119365-513) -> -1
Administrators (S-1-5-32-544) -> -1
Account Operators (S-1-5-32-548) -> -1
Backup Operators (S-1-5-32-551) -> -1
Users (S-1-5-32-545) -> users
Domain Admins (S-1-5-21-1135672234-1853056381-2991119365-512) -> dadmin

Since S-1-5-21-1135672234-1853056381-2991119365-514 is the last number
displayed I could use:

Also how does one remove a mapping from a local unixgroup?  It seems
once mapped, I can only ever assign it to a new group or delete the
ntgroup and start again.
