in realyity u only need 1 group , group 0 (it should be refered to as this instead of root cuse some people like to rename there 0 user/group), however some poorly writen install scripts require root group, and tty group and theres like 1000 stadard groups, this is a pain if ya want to have users part of groups cuse i dont htink most distros write down what every group does, just look for a group names anyithng like "regualr" or " standard" , if all else fails then pick "root" itll giv ya near god like acess on your system (if the system was poorly made)
