Easiest way when u create the user :

[root@foobar ~]# adduser bob -g root
or
[root@foobar ~]# adduser bob -g wheel
or
[root@foobar ~]# adduser bob -g adm

Depending on what group you need.

Another ugly way is to directly edit /etc/passwd and modify the second figure value and set it to the correct group :
i.e : 0 for root, that would look :
bob:x:501:0::/home/bob:/bin/bash
