The latest smbldap-installer (see the archives of this list or the dev
list for the repository) has a webmin module which makes moving users
between groups...a snap.  Check it out.

Otherwise what I do....

Something like this makes it easy to add everyone to the fuse group

for x in `ls /home`; do
echo "Adding ${x} to the fuse group..."
/usr/sbin/smbldap-groupmod -m ${x} fuse
echo "I have added ${x} to the fuse group"

or you can simply do...

/usr/sbin/smblap-groupmod -m username group


/usr/sbin/smbldap-groupmod -m jsmith admin
