SUMMARY: solaris groups

Firstly, thanks for all the replies. The consensus is:

1. The tty user listed as a member of the tty group is a known Solaris 8 
bug. It wasn't causing a problem, but I've changed tty::7:root,tty,adm 
to tty::7:root,adm with to  keep folks quiet.

2. The staff and sysadmin groups do have specific purposes (eg. the 
sysadmin group controls who can use admintool). Removing them is a bad 
idea which may well break things, either now or later. They're staying 
on my system.
