Smile how to add new users in fedora core 4 and allow them to use sudo for some commands


Guys i've just installed installed fedora core 4 on my system at home, and i was thinking creating some user accounts so that my sister and my brother can log on and access various applications and do their surf on the internet. i wanted to know if i could maybe give them some permissions to use sudo for some commands like listing all the files, and other stuff. they do have a bit of knowledge to detect network settings and get the internet working and to installother app by using the built in YUM program.

sudo to do an ls?? you're welcome to edit /etc/sudoers, but you've not given any examples there that would reuire sudo access. see the sudoers manpage for details of how to edit the file.
