[Samba] Winbind IDMAP question.

Hello all,

I have joined my linux boxes to AD and can authenticate using Active
Directory usernames and passwords using Winbind.
I want to Authenticate to AD but have that user mapped to a local Unix
or NIS ID otherwise the AD authentication is useless and only hinders
with file permissions and such.

My first questions in regards to an ADS domain member server. 
Can Winbind be used to map a SPECIFIC unix uid to a SPECIFIC Windows
I thought I was onto something with idmap_rid but it seems that uses a
predefined pool of UID's.
However from what I am reading it seems that idmap_ldap can be used to
accomplish this. Am I wrong about that? . Can Samba and Winbind
accomplish this?

2nd question is in regards to ADS, can I use a local UID to RID map
somewhat similar to usernamemap for smbpasswd backend? 

Also if possible any how to or links are appreciated.

Thank you for your time.
