Learn into sudo. When you type, as root, "visudo". there is a commented
out entry for "%wheel", specifically:

# %wheel        ALL=(ALL)       NOPASSWD: ALL

Uncomment that. Then type, as root, "vigr". Add to the "wheel" group
whoever users you want, separated by a comma, like:


Now, when you want to run commands, example yum updates, just go:

sudo yum update

or if you want to run commands not in your path (ie stuff in sbin/):

sudo /usr/sbin/ntpdate

Warning... this is basically giving root access to whoever you add to
the wheel group. Nope they won't have to type the root password anymore.
It might be somewhat different from what you are asking, or it might

Hope this helps!
