When you add a user with "adduser" by default FreeBSD creates a group simil=
ar=20
named like the username. If you later say that this user should be in group=
=20
wheel it's additional.

This line just gives write access to group. You can either add the line:
own    acd0 root:wheel

or you edit /etc/groups and add your user to the group operator.
I'd prefere the latter.

Here's my simple /etc/group example:
# $FreeBSD: src/etc/group,v 1.28 2003/04/27 05:49:53 imp Exp $
#
