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.

you can add an user to a predefined set (that nearly match yours) also when you create the account with adduser.
after selecting user's main group ("users" by default) you are presented a prompt in which you have to input additional groups
Additional UNIX groups:
Users can belong to additional UNIX groups on the system.
For local users using graphical desktop login managers such
as XDM/KDM, users may need to be members of additional groups
to access the full functionality of removable media devices.
* Security implications *
Please be aware that by adding users to additional groups may
potentially give access to the removable media of other users.
If you are creating a new user for remote shell access only,
users do not need to belong to any additional groups as standard,
so you may press ENTER at the next prompt.
Press ENTER to continue without adding any additional groups
Or press the UP arrow to add/select/edit additional groups
if you press the up arrow the prompt is filled with a set of default group for having a comfortable slackware desktop experience.
