Question sudoers


Hi
I have a question, hope someone can help me. I have two accounts on my system;
1- root
2- usama
And I mostly use account "usama". Whenever I try to launch "kppp" or "redhat-config-packages" or something like that (which requires administrative priviliges) I had to put root passward. As I am also root so can I make it possible that when I launch kppp or some other application, it souldnot ask for root password. I heard that I have to edit /etc/sudoers but I dont know that what I have to put in that file. Will tell me that what I have to do to overcome my problem.
Thanks.

Adding the line
usama ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL

Will allow you to sudo commands without a password.

Adding the line
usama ALL=NOPASSWD: kppp, redhat-config-packages

will allow you to run those two commands with sudo without a password.

There is an example file here:
