Configure SATA as IDE

admin domain/server if it is about admins.

I am just too ignorant/stupid.
The idea is:
I create a group and add users to the group. Not necessary admins. It might be Power Users. I can create new users and go to their properties and add them to Power Users. But instead of doing this to every new user, I thought I might add 10 new users...
