Samba/Linux Groups Question

Just a quick question because I can't really test this myself; but is it possible to nest groups within groups in your etc/group file? For example: I have groups with common users, so rather than rewriting all those users, is it possible to just nest a group in there instead?

the group file is an ascii file so it'll just think group2 is a user. Dunno what processes the file though.

Anyway, think your just better off getting a small script for the job

O well. Thought it was too straightforwardly simple. Thanks for the input.
