Maybe a slightly different slant would help?
I think part of the problem is thinking of the windows administrator 
being equivalent to root on Unix. They're not. root can do anything and 
go everywhere. It is a local only account. There are two windows 
administrators on each domain machine and neither can do much without 
authorising them. Unix knows nothing about SIDs and windows nothing 
about uid=0.
