To create logon script and NTconfig.pol is basically the work on Windows side.
At the view of Samba, to create NETLOGON share and to put NTconfig.pol already
created on Windows is the only work about system policy.

Also to specify the name of logon script in smb.conf and putting
proper logon script
to proper path is about logon script.

Basically you had better search these topics into Windows documents.
Remember that
system policy is suitable for NT4, so you should search in old docs.

If you can use GPO, you can add any domain groups to local groups automatically.
But unfortunately Samba 3 domain does not support GPO.
