That is pretty much it.
After you have done a few systems, you will tend to have some groups
you commonly use and you will probably want to keep to that habit
as that can make some things easier when you move things around.
But, for the beginning, just take what it gives you and then, like
Jeff says, pick one regular login and add wheel to its list of groups
it is a member of so you can do the su thing.
