I have never tried.  I have used root for administrative purposes.

Typically, I give administrative rights to users by putting them as members
of the Doman Admins group.  You can try that.

BTW,  I use the NT 4.0 User Manager for Domains tool to manage my users and
groups.  It works quite well with the smb-ldap tools.  Put the tool on a
Samba share and run it from a workstation.
