Using usernames and permissions from Windows domain accounts


How can you set up cygwin so that Windows domain usernames are being
used, rather than what I have now, which is, at the cygwin prompt:


Note that people are logging into the machine as a domain user, but as
that domain user they are administrator on their local machine. This is
(I think) why cygwin puts Administrator@machine> at the prompt. However,
I would like people to have a cygwin prompt which recognises their
Windows domain username as well as the permissions, so that if they go
into a directory with cygwin (for example a mapped Z drive), the windows
permissions are taken into account when commands are given at the cygwin

How can this be done? 

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
