Lost my groups I'm in

I am using debian lenny
Accidentally I erased my groups. I want to add them back.
Can Anyone say that which groups am I supposed to be in?
Can any lenny user write "groups" on commandline and say the output?

Thank you, my computer is more reliable now.

does anyone have more of it? because I remember that I have more.
I added ssh, vboxusers. Any other application specific groups?

My KnetworkManager still does not see ethernet plugged in.

If you remember or see more of it, please write here.
You can use command 'groups' to see.
