I think he needs to know how to set it up I always leave this task to our sysadmin b/c I end up only setting up my account to have full root privileges , our sysadmin knows it thoroughly so he can setup different users into different groups that have different privileges, for instance one group can restart printer server only, another can mount media, etc.
So on Monday I'll ask him to teach me sudoers thingy.
