Not with /etc/group on linux. You may want to look at NIS which (I believe) has the concept of "netgroups". Alternately, you can use LDAP with a custom schema.

well , I see.
ok , because I am a Lotus Notes Admin , I wll go for ldap, I had set up a Domino server and thus having ldap already there.
I have to evaluate how i can get these both worlds get together :-)
Once I am more familiar with gentoo , I will try to create my first ebuild and submit them for a domino install :-)

In that case, you might find the LDAP Implementation HOWTO useful. It assumes a linux-based ldap server, but also explains how to get PAM working so it will authenticate against LDAP.
