I think the easiest way is to create a group for yourself... instead of
switching to another group. Here are the steps:

1) Login as root

2) Create the group:
# niutil -create / /groups/rkylin

3) Set the group id:
# niutil -createprop / /groups/rkylin gid 500

4) Just for security:
# niutil -createprop / /groups/rkylin passwd "*"

5) Verify:
# niutil -read / /groups/rkylin
name: rkylin
gid: 500
passwd: *
