A Windows domain is the name given to an office network that is managed by a
domain controller, which is a server. I don't think you've got a domain in
that respect, so I think we're going off in the wrong direction.

The lock means that they are owned by root or another user, but most likely
root. I think I need to do this with a machine running Ubuntu in front of
me, so I'll get back to you tonight.
