group id problems

My LFS system (3.3) has a problem with group names and ids.

The output of the ls -l command lists the owner has a name (root) and 
the group
has a number (0).  Also, when groupadd is invoked it will duplicate GID 
in the
/etc/group file and the useradd command errors out when used with the -g 

Any suggestions?
