During this installation of PCLinux, you should have been prompted to create a root user password. PCLinux doesn't use sudo by default, you gain access to administrator privileges by entering: su or su - in a terminal and then your password to perform administrative tasks. You might also be able to login as root to do administrative tasks.

If you want to use sudo for some reason, use the search function here at LQ or do an online search 'how to enable sudo", should get you the information you need.

But really, sudo is just a Linux tool and exist for your operating system too, you just need to figure out how to install it and set it up, so your user can use the user password for little task that doesn’t need to be root for.
Actually sudo is not just a Linux thing but other OSes can also use it. FreeBSD, Solaris, AIX, Mac, are non linux OS that can use sudo.
Ubuntu and its derivatives they all come with sudo already configured for you
