Can groups be members of other groups?

    The Microsoft 70-270 Training Kit 2nd Ed. states (page 7-37) that "Groups
    can be members of other groups". But I've found out that I cannot do this by
    using the local users and groups snap-in. The only thing that comes close is
    that you can add built-in security principals (like interactive, everyone,
    network etc) to groups.
    Any advice on that please?

    My understanding is on a Doman Controller

    Domain Functional level Win 2000 Native & Win2003 can have a nested global
    group, but you can't have a domain local nested in a domain local no matter
    what, I dunno correct me if I'm wrong.
