Yes, using Winbind, AD users and groups appear to be local users and groups
to the *nix box, so you can then chown/chgrp files and dirs specifying the
user/group as "DOMAIN/user". That's one way of adding AD users and groups.
You should also be able to use the Microsoft MMC, or windows explorer to do

Additionally if your kernel supports POSIX ACL's and Extended attributes you
can modify any permissions in a 200X ACL that appears on: share properties
->Advanced button ->Permissions tab

I actualy spoke too soon as i was mistaken i had found the solution, i am
still having a problem doing this. The change i made allows me to apply
changes to the ACL's and i get no error, but in actuality the change is not
being made, if you reopen the share properties and look at the ACL it's
unchanged. So i still have a problem somewhere.
