Without sending me links to various sites can someone explain the basics of global, local, domain local and universal groups, my experience until now has only been with one 2003 domain controller and one domain name.

In general I create a global group, share a folder add the group to the folder assign permissions and then add what ever users I need to that group .. easy..

Where do domain local groups and universal groups come into play?

I take it local groups (as oppose to domain local groups) only apply to stand alone machines such as xp pro.
