You have the option of using the Windows NT tool User Manager for Domains to
manage your users and groups.  You will need to set up your add user and add
group scripts in the smb.conf file.

You can find the tool here  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/173673/

Put User Manager for Domains on a Samba share and run it from a workstation.

I have never used the mapping command.
