Using samba 2.2.7a with Winbind on a Redhat 8.0 machine - when I login
locally with a domain username and password I get this message: "id: cannot
find name for group ID 10000"

-I seem to have full access to everything, so I'm not sure what effect this
actually has - Ideas?

Also, I'm trying to create some samba shares with NT domain group
permissions. in the placeholder file for domain users/groups, you're
supposed to have

linuxgroupname = @domaingroupname       #is this right?  so it would
actually look this?:

project = @Informant+Project Users

I'm a little confused on this point and haven't seem to found documentation
on it...
