all you need to do is to 'adduser <username> <group>', and log in again.
you can use 'groups' to list the groups you are part of, and a similar
'deluser <username> <group>' to remove a user from a group.

on a desktop sarge install, it gives the following
$ groups
piem dialout cdrom floppy audio video plugdev

except if you installed gnome or other packages (alsa?) after creating
your user. then you will want to add yourself to the above groups. the
'plugdev' group is to have group-volume-manager automount your devices.

the group 'src' is also useful to compile kernels in /usr/src as a user.
and the 'adm' one sometimes, to read the syslogs.

bye, piem
