Question gksudo problems


Greetings,

I am having problem to execute a graphical program in a terminal using the "sudo" command... When I try to execute the sudo gedit, for example, this message appears in the terminal:

Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

Anyone could help me? I can't figure out what is happening... I am using the Gentoo Linux 2007.0.
