When a Windows workstation including Windows XP has joined to a domain,
"Domain Admins" and "Domain Users" always joined to its Administrators
and Users respectively.

This behavior is a part of Windows workstation implementation. Samba has
nothing to do with it.

Why MYDOMAIN\none joined to Users is that you have not created "Domain Users".
