adding multiple groups in a single user


Hi,

I'm new with linux. I'm using fedora for my laboratory. May I ask anyone of you here know how to add a one user but he/she is belong to a multiple group. Is it possible in linux? Need this coz' I'm sharing a folder to act as a samba for windows. This is for the purpose of write/read permission on the folder shared.

Thanks....

Just type "gpasswd -a user group" as root. Do it once for each group. I don't know if it can be done for multiple groups in one shot.
