How Do I Load A Program With Superuser Permission?

I'm using ubuntu 8.04 and have installed a program called 'moto4lin'. The only way for me to load it up is by using 'gksudo moto4lin'. I added the program to my menu and gave it the above command to open it. However, it asks for my password all the time when I load it up. Is there a command I can give it that won't ask me for my password? This would be convenient.
