         Yes I have. Not only that, but created new groups on the machine, all 
 with unique ids > 0, < 65534. All failed. Here's an example:

         I don't want to have to set it to be as group users (100), as that 
 could easily cause a huge security hole. I've also tried 60001, which gave me 
 the same error above, s/2000/60001. Any other insights into this?
 
                                                         BL.
