I had a similar problem, the difference being that I tried to assign the /bin/su file to the group wheel after creating the group.
Check and see if /bin/su has the suid bit set.
Hope this will solve your problem.
Hey thanks. I wish I could log as root, but I can't. I even tried this http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo but did not work. I will backup and reinstall. If I try sudo -i, then I get "sudo: must be setuid root", if I run su, then I get "su: Authentication failue". I logged in the repair mode (as root) and run chmod +s /bin/su, did not work either. Somehow I messed up sudoers/sudo badly.
