Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

LFS is exactly that, Linux From Scratch. The Wheel group is what some of the distro's have setup to be a super user group type thing, where users can execute certain normal use things such as shut down...
although the "apagar" group you see there its the group i made and seted every file (halt, reboot....) to it.
You'll actually wanna look into SUDO. That is the reason that tool is there, to give a user permission to do things normally only capable by root (the superuser). So change all your permissions back, get things back in order, and then look into using Sudo: http://www.courtesan.com/sudo/
