[Samba] samba admin user permissions

Running samba 3.0.2.  My users are all in the unix group called admins

I ran the following command:

net groupmap modify ntgroup="Domain Admins" unixgroup=admins

I can do most things, however when I browse the web, things are all messed
up. Most pages wont come up. Has anyone seen this and can provide some
input.  Or if you know how to make your unix user be an admin on the XP
workstation that would be great.

Also, I have added my username to the Local Administrators group, and that
didn't seem to solve the problem. I am using Roaming Profiles.

Well I have created the home dir with same name for the Windows user and yes
I am trying to pull the home dir from the Linux machine.  

Plus,  I am experiencing another problem now.  When I am trying to log into
the Linux machine via console it is taking a long time to login.  Even if I
try to login with Windows user AD account or local root account. HMMM!!!!
What can cause this problem?

If you're using winbind and you can log in with the user on your linux 
box, it sounds like you're almost there. Have you:
1. Created a dir on the linux machine with the name of your windows user
2. Set owner of said directory to the windows user
3. made sure the [homes] section is still there
4. defined (in AD) the location of your home directory to be 

This is all assuming that you were trying to pull the home directory 
from the linux machine.  If you're trying to go the other direction 
(home dir on win) you need a different setup.  It's been discussed here, 
but I don't know what to do for it.
