useradd with default values ?!

root@local$: useradd -D

but now adding a new users does not seem to obey the default settings since every new users get an incrementing number as his ID. This is okay...but he is also in an GROUP with incrementing number.

e.g. useradd test1 --->>> ID 501 Groupid 501
useradd new --->>> ID 502 Groupid 502

r Group ID is not 100...Why ??? really strange....hmmm :-(

thanx for your hints people..

useradd -g initial_group ...
