I have been using ubuntu extensively and use the following from the command line:

deluser <username> <groupname>

It doesn't seem to work in fedora. Is there an equivalent?

The corresponding line translates:

Action                 | Debian                | Red Hat/CentOS/Fedora | OpenSUSE               | Gentoo 
-----------------------+-----------------------+-----------------------+------------------------+----------------------
delete user from group | deluser user group    | gpasswd -d user group | groupmod -R user group | gpasswd -d user group 
                       | gpasswd -d user group |

If you know an English Rosetta stone for this kind of task, please tell me. ;)

If you are unsure what exactly a command is doing, the corresponding man page should give you all needed details.
