This shows two errors.  You shouldn't be using config-base for your config 
directory; it's intended for the release supplied info and parts of it get 
symlinked into your own config directory when you run new-config.  (You did 
run new-config didn't you?)  After you get that cleared up, you'll need a 
groups file.  If you use the new-{ping,port,unix}-hosts programs to add new 
hosts, they will add the groups you tell them to.  If not, you'll need to 
update the groups file yourself.  It'll be easier for you to use the 
new-xxx-hosts programs at first.  Then look at what it did.
