Edit /etc/group by hand and place this in it:

Backup Operators:S-1-5-32-551:551:
Power Users:S-1-5-32-547:547:
Remote Desktop Users:XXXXXXX:900:   where XXXX is the sid for 
       Remote Desktop Users that you have in /etc/passwd (I think).

I can make more suggestions if you send your passwd file.

Regarding the CreateFileMapping problem, the message you report is
   *** CreateFileMapping, Win32 error 0. Terminating.
but the code in Cygwin is

     api_fatal ("CreateFileMapping %s, %E.  Terminating.", mapname);
The *** in front is added elsewhere, but you are missing the space
after CreateFileMapping and the mapname (which could be null).

So, what version of Cygwin are you using?

Are the non privileged users running from the console or from
terminal services? 
Do they have the "create global object" privilege? If not, try
  to assign it.
You say it's working on Win2000. What service pack? Also, on that
machine, what are the answers to the 2 questions above?
