Samba domain: admin rights problem on XP

I've configured Domain using Samba PDC, and multiple winXP boxes. I have problem running some programs in XP's, due to admin rights.

Even I'm logged in as root, I do not have proper admin rights to run the program.

I ran "net localgroup administrators" on XP and got the following:
TESTDOMAIN\Domain admins

Also "net localgroup users" gave me:

1. How would I give admin rights to users using samba?

2. Is it possible to create Power users (standard user) in XP using samba PDC?
if so, how would I do it?
I want to see "net localgroup Power Users" give me:

Thanks in Advance,

Use webmin to administer much easier than fighting the configuration files.

Just installed Webmin and got it working for Admin rights.

I still cannot figure out how to add "Power Users".

Is it possible to create "Power Users" from Domain users? or it's just not supported?
If possible, how would I do it through Webmin?
