I have Sharepoint V3 running fine on an SBS2003 box. I created a site and then added the AD security group of 'Office Staff' to the 'Visitors' group within the site.

Since I did this I have no longer been able to use the New User Wizard within SBS 2003 to add new users who need to be members of security group 'Office Staff'.

I receive the following error message during creation:

" A Windows SharePoint site group could not be assigned"

Is there something I have missed which needs changing, security account between SBS2003 and Sharepoint V3 maybe?

Your help is grately apreciated.
