     The group should have been created/added by adb at install time. 
Since adb is not provided by CentOS, you will need to take this issue to 
the support avenue for that package. I assume you use the EPEL package, 
in which case you'd need to file a but at bugzilla.redhat.com.
     The same goes with the udev rules. I am sure that the maintainer of 
the package will be glad if you provide a patch ( i.e. the file to include )
