Yes. Hope you have read the Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf that ships with
Samba-3.0.0rc4. It has a LOT of information on this subject. Let me know
if it is not good enough won't you. I still have 36 hours to fix it.
If after 36 hours noone has given me further feedback the deficiencies
will stay there.

So check the chapter on Group Mapping and the chapter on Policies.

Did you check the Samba-HOWTO-Collection on the Samba Web page? There is
one for Samba-2.2.8 and one for Samba-3. It's the later one you want.
