    Choose Computers instead of Users & Groups? – Ben Pilbrow Jun 30 '11 at 17:40

Begin by adding a member to the group, like you normally would. To add a machine account to a group, you have to ensure that in the Select Users dialog, under Object Types, that Computers is selected. Then enter the machine name, without the $. It should validate.
