Mapping roaming users to local XP groups

Oliver Schulze L.
Hi,
I have setup a network with: samba 2.2.7a on RedHat 9 and Windows XP Client,
all using roaming profiles.

All if working ok.
My question is, how do I configure that certain users to be in the
Administrator
group of all PCs?
Or how do I put some users to be in the Backup/LimitedUsers/etc builtin
groups
the Windows XP Clients? How do I do this user to Windows XP groups mapping?

Many thanks
Oliver

The standard way is to go to the console and simply add the user to the
group.  This is a pain though.  A logon script that does the following
would be best, in my humble opinion:

1. Checks to see if the user belongs to group X.
2. If not, then add that user to group X.

Problem: How does one do this without having to use a password?
