How to create a Group with rwx permission?

I want to create a GROUP with rwx permission. Also, I want to create a GROUP with root privileges, so that next time i create a user, I just need to add it to any of the groups and privileges automatically applied.

please help.

Could you please use the following command. Also you can make a user member of any group so that user can get same permissions.

groupadd groupname

You can't create a group that has rwx (or any other type of) permission. Permissons and access control lists are file attributes.

You don't need to create that , on many/most systems you already have that: group root (or wheel on other systems)

Two names for root permissions is not a good thing.
