[Samba] Problem with domain admins - net groupmap

today I tried to setup domainadmins for local administration tasks like 
installing software etc.

I followed the instructions to create a unix group and added unix users 
to the group. The same user had a working roaming windows profile.

After that I did a "net group add ntgroup="Domain Admins" unixgroup=admin".

After logging on to the windows xp SP2 workstation, I'm still a "normal" 
user, gettinmg the message, that I don't have local administration 

So I started googling and found an information, that I may have two 
Domain Admin groupmaps. That was right, so I deleted the newly created 
one and modified the existing one:

net groupmap modify sid=S-1-5-21-3348813608-2003740952-1141461195-512 

After loging on to the xp workstation, I still have no admin rights.

The server is a RedHat Enterprise 3, kernel 2.4.21-40.ELsmp, 

Any Ideas or hints what to check? Which services have to run on the 
server, what smb.conf options are involved?

Thanks for any hint, tip and troubleshouting-guide!
