samba invalid users


I'm comparing a RHEL4 samba server's config to a new RHEL install with a default samba config. on the old one I see that there is a line saying

invalid users = root bin daemon adm sync shutdown halt mail news operator

On the new default install I don't even see where it mentions the invalid users option in the notes. Does it do that by default now or something?
