The standard way is to go to the console and simply add the user to the
group.  This is a pain though.  A logon script that does the following
would be best, in my humble opinion:

1. Checks to see if the user belongs to group X.
2. If not, then add that user to group X.

Problem: How does one do this without having to use a password?
