Re: [tlug] Feisty Upgrade, USB issues and other oddities

Dave can simply try 'addgroup[1] user group' instead of messing with
sed scripts. Yes, I know addgroup is not compatible with other
distros, but since he is using a Debian-based one, I don't see why he
can't use a friendlier tool to do his admin tasks. Just keep in mind
that this command is not distro-universal.

[1] man addgroup

Or he could edit the files directly using vipw:

sudo vipw /etc/group

As is usually the case a quick trip to man vipw may help.

Please note that you should not use a normal editor directly on the
group or passwd files. Lest corruption of said files and grief may
