Try using adduser with the name following, but I tried the same for groupadd and addgroup, both of those didn't work for me. You can always manually add them in to /etc/group with the format

group_name: passwd(keep blank if you want no password):GID:user_list separated by commas

Hope this helps, but I do know for sure the adduser will add the user for you.

Alright, I was playing around, and I was trying to add group names I didn't already have, and then all of a sudden it was taking them. What is the error when you try to add groups with groupadd? I was getting error's, then going back trying to add the same group name again, then it was telling me the group already exists. Hmmmmmm

Let me know.....Also this is within RH 7.0 as well.

gord,
Try typing /usr/sbin/groupadd or adding /usr/sbin to your path.
