Start the domain range at '500' instead of '0'
Add these lines to your smb.conf:

username map = /usr/local/samba/etc/user.map
min domain uid = 0

Create /usr/local/samba/etc/user.map containing this:

!root = LXCERRUTI\Administrator

Reload the Samba config or restart Samba.

Run 'net cache flush'

You should now be able to use ' root' on Linux, Administrator from 
Windows will be mapped to root.

If you have given Administrator  a uidNumber and/or a gidNumber, you 
should remove them.

I don't know if you noticed, but XP is dead, it had a nice funeral :-D
