Hi gram77,

Questions 1 and 3 are the same.  :)

  groups xyz

That command will return all of the groups that user xzy belongs to.

The file /etc/group contains all of the groups on the system, the group id number (GID) and the users that are members of each group.  Take a quick look at the file, it's pretty easy to follow.


Good Luck,
Kent
