If you are using useradd command, just provide the -g groupId of the designated group. If you are manually editing the passwd and shadow files, use the GID in the 4th col. of passwd file.
     
useradd  [ -c comment ]   [  -d dir  ]   [  -e expire  ]   [
     -f inactive ]  [ -g group ]  [ -G group  [ , group ...  ]  ]
     [ -m  [ -k skel_dir ]  ]  [ -u uid  [ -o ]  ]  [ -s shell  ]
     login

     useradd -D  [ -b base_dir ]  [ -e expire ]  [ -f inactive  ]
     [ -g group ]

DESCRIPTION
     useradd  adds a  new  user  entry  to  the  /etc/passwd  and
     /etc/shadow  files.  It  also  creates  supplementary  group
     memberships for the user (-G option) and  creates  the  home
     directory  (-m  option)  for  the user if requested. The new
     login remains locked until the  passwd(1)  command  is  exe-
     cuted.
