Lightbulb I have a question about the groupadd thanks...

I know that root is the one that can create groupadd, useradd, etc. I was wondering how do I change the permissions to allow my username to create groupadd, useradd, etc. If anyone has the answer please let me know this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks you guys are awesome and the more I work with LINUX/UNIX, the more I enjoy Thanks again guys.

Don't know how to give user the permission but you could use
for it instead of becoming root every time you want to add a user or group.

sudo should be the perfect solution for that
