You can usually place the file wherever you want, but typically it's
where you keep the rest of your samba configuration files. For example,
the following:

domain user map = /usr/samba/domainuser.mapping

I've also seen

domain user map = /etc/samba/domainuser.mapping

you will want to be sure you have the formatting correct within the
file. This is:

UnixUsername = [\\Domain\\]NTUserName

not sure if case sensitivity is a factor.

Take a peek at O'Reilly's website, there's a great samba book available
for purchase as well as downloadable pdf. Should contain everything you
need. Well worth the cost if you decide to purchase it. Anyway, let me
know if the above helps.
By the way, got your message that you sent me privately, but noticed you
got it solved before I got home from work.

You know you've been spending too much time on the computer when your
friend misdates a check, and you suggest adding a "++" to fix it.
