Question about user/group rights


Right now I am running a Mandrake81 box and a Slackware8 box and have a question about user rights.

I will try and keep this very short. I don't even know if this is possible or not.

I would like to give my account pretty much the equivalent of a Domain Administor or Local Administrator within a WindowNT environment.

Basically whenever root gets a system message I want to get it as well.

Does anyone know where I can find some good documentation on this subject?

/etc/mail/aliases

create a mail alias

that sends all root bound mail to you

edit /etc/mail/aliases

see if there is a line like
root: BLAH

if not add
root: you@whatever.com

once this is done
run newaliases to has this file. and send a test mail to root

mail root < /etc/mail/aliases

should be enough to confirm that it works
