That's what I figured was going on. I don't know where to look in SBS
(I'm not really a windows admin) to change that. Looking at properties
for objects in AD, it doesn't even call DOMAIN.COM\Users an OU (unlike
SBSUsers) - so I'm wondering if there's some oddball mapping going on
somewhere, but I don't see the users anywhere else in the AD tree.
