Oops, I didn't answer to this question, but the answer is easy:
It would be fine, if mkpasswd/mkgroup would give more information.
Unfortunately, NT doesn't hand out this info voluntary!

Another point: In, there is created a default group entry


which gives problems with ntsec. It would be better, to take the default
group of NT, which also should be read from NT database, because of native
language differences:

	None::513:		[english/us]
	Kein::513:		[german]
	Aucun::513:		[french]
