Thanks. That's what I figured when looking at it, but always good to receive confirmation. So the set up on this particular issue is the same, even if the name of the groups is different.

I agree with lazydog.

But they can provide better examples rather than just setting "sudo" to be the functional equivalent equivalent of "su".
I am partial on this, rather than giving examples in config files, they can quote examples in man pages itself.

you can always read the man pages, and if you think its complicated , you can lookup help in other ways , google forums etc.
