The other thing is, I don't know if I should create a samba users group in the system and add my samba users to it or use an existing group. I'm lost here.
a windows domain is a windows workgroup with extra features - if you
want to use samba groups, you have to use samba groups and you have to
map the groups. I gave you the link to the direct topic of samba group
mapping. I don't know how much more help I can give you.
