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.

i created a user now that user isnt having permission to view some parts of directories like lilo.conf file n many others i want to make the user i created equal to superuser..i know i can change the permission of file but i dont want to do that and change the user i created preference to that of superuser so that i couldnt be prompt for p/w hope u got it this time
ah... you can use sudo for that...
it isn't the greatest idea but I'm not gonna bitch because I do it as well..
I think adding the user to the adm group will have an effect but I've never done it.. I have a friend who does that though..
but you'll have to edit /etc/sudoers, you're supposed to do this with visudo but I've never had problems editing it with pico or vi
read man sudo for help.. also, taking a look at your /etc/sudoers might make it obvious what you have to do
those.. though being good points.. are ones I choose to disregard.. simply for the sake of convenience.. I do this on my personal box and NOT my server.. also.. I wouldn't recommend asking questions like this in a public forum. you get much negative feedback.. and really .. it is deserved.. but.. it's still up to you..
