An exact distribution-free method is proposed for solving general linear
regression problems, which have identically distributed errors and one of the
slope parameters of interest. The method reduces the model to simple linear
regression form through grouping of observations, and then uses an exact
distribution-free method for slope in simple linear regression to test or estimate
the parameter of interest. Of course reducing the model involves a loss of
efficiency. The choice of an optimal grouping to minimize efficiency loss is
