Need Global groups converted to Domain-Local

We have a lot of Global groups in our 2003 AD. We have merged with another company and despite the two-way trust relationship with their Domain we have some difficulties assigning their user/groups to our some of our groups since they are Global. Ideally the groups needed to have been Domain-Local. Is there a way to convert Global groups to Domain-Local? I haven't found anything on the web that says this can be done - so am not sure if it is even possible. I have explored SubInACL but have not found any solution yet. Any help would be appreciated.

Change the Global group to Universal.  Apply settings then change it to Domain Local.  Since Global groups can not be changed to Domain Local you have to use this step to first change them to Universal, then to Domain Local.
