NT Domain local groups

If I create a local group on an NT domain, should machines that are not domain controllers be able to see these groups?  How would I create a group that a w/s can see that contains users from anothr domain, thatI do not have permission to create groups in, so I would want to pick individual users from the other domain?

For example;
The domain I administer is called MYDOMAIN and a domain that we trust is OTHERDOMAIN, but OTHERDOMAIN does not trust MYDOMAIN.
If I create a global group in MYDOMAIN, I can only add accounts that are a part of MYDOMAIN, however all users here log into OTHERDOMAIN.  I want to create several groups of OTHERDOMAIN users (who are all already in the Global group on OTHERDOMAIN called "MyDomain users").

If I create a global group in MYDOMAIN, I can only add MYDOMAIN users, which doesn't help.

Any ideas?

Local groups can only be used on the server in which they are created.  You need to create Global groups that can be used on other servers and yes, the global groups can be used on non-domain controllers as long as they are part of the same domain.  

You can not add individual users from a trusted domain into a local group on your domain, they need to be put into global groups on the other domain first.  Then the global groups can be added to local groups on your domain.  Also, you can not add global groups from the other domain to global groups in your domain to be used on a non domain controller.

Even if the other domain trusted your domain you could still not create groups on the other domain because you need to be part of the Domain Admins group on the other domain.  You are not automatically added to the Domain Admins group when a trust is set up.
