/etc/group - where all your groups are
You can just open this file and edit it to add new groups. The last field is who's
in the group and a user doesn't have the permissions of the group unless s/he
logs in after the /etc/group file is updated, ie, group permissions are loaded at login time.
As for how to use chown and chmod, etc, you may want to read this .
