Group required for su
I've just installed NetBSD 1.0 on a IIci at work while waiting for ADB
support for my IIsi at home.
Go  Brad go ;-)
I created an account for myself since I'm a newbie at unix admin and I will
end up trashing
the system if I'm always root.
The problem I'm having is that I can't su to root . It says I'm in the wrong
group. If I run groups
it says I'm in wheel. My home account dir and everything I create says
wheel. The man pages
for su say you have to be in wheel. Anyone know what I'm missing?

This is a real pain since you have to logout and log back in as root just to
reboot to the Mac OS.
By the way, if I run halt, the machine shuts down. Is this the proper way to
shutdown so you
don't need to reboot to the Mac OS in order to shutdown?
