Howto grant access for a user to qtparted?

I'm trying to give a normal user access to qtparted. Since this is root only I need to edit sudo (or sudoers that is) I've read the manuals but still get nowhere. Visudo is driving me mad (I'm used to nano), so does anyone have done this (for any program) and could tell me what to do?

Visudo is quite simple to use. Just read up on vi/m basic commands because thats the editor that visudo uses.

I think you can configure visudo to use nano via this command:

# update-alternatives --config editor

Anyway, I don't see any reason why normal users should have access to qtparted.
