not in sudoer file

I was trying to config firestarter to start on auto and deleted my sudoer.tmp file. Now I'm not listed as a root user and can't edit or access as sudo or su . I get can't be authenticated or access violation this will be reported, messages. What to do?

Hi, welcome to LQ!

Boot with a live-/rescue-CD and edit the sudoers file
from there.
