[Samba] Remote Registry Changes

I'm trying to add registry entries to my workstations remotely from  
my server. I can currently do this remotely from any other  
workstation, using the standard Windows regedt32, but I'd like to do  
it form the server. .. The server is Samba 3.0.22-r3 on a Gentoo server.

I've been digging around for a while now, and have managed to find  
docs for samba-tng which seem to allow this (which is useless to me  
as I'm not using samba-tng :) ), and a couple of sites that suggest  
that the command 'regcreatekey' should be usable with the rpcclient  

(One example is from http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_books/ 

Actually, I even seem to find a reference to them in the patch file  
here: (http://lists.samba.org/archive/samba-cvs/2005-February/ 

Anyway, there is no documentation of this (or any similar) commands  
in the rpcclient man page, or help text, nor the net command's man  
page or help text, and no attempts to find them or get them to work  
have worked.  So ... has this been removed or something?

More importantly, it actually possible to do what I want?
