Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

OK... I have been trying to grant the user jbo on CentOS root access on a development box. Please don't ask me why, it is the documentation as a requirement, even though I don't agree with it. they break it, they can flippin fix it.
Anyways... I have tried giving the following in the \etc\sudoers file
jbo ALL=(ALL) ALL
I have also added the user to the Root and Wheel group and uncommented out those lines from the sudoers file.
but that doesn't seem to do a damn thing... when I go to the prompt and do the SU command, I still have to enter the Root user password (which I DO NOT want to give these guys...)
I am pretty much a noob to Linux... but I have been a system admin for over 10 years. from everything I was able to glean, this little change should do the trick, but the OS is unfazed..
I am thinking this might be my lack of understanding of the purpose of the groups and sudoer's file.
a lil help or noob edjemekation would be appreciated. Thanks folks.
