CVSNT will pull the user's list of groups from AD and add them to it's 
internal list.  It also pulls the groups the user is part of from the 
groups file.

Look at the "chacl" and "lsacl" commands to learn more about how to use 
the groups with CVSNT.  Use a group name in the "user" field to assign a 
group the permissions instead of an individual.

The modules file only organizes the modules, it has nothing to do with 
access control.
