Still not quite disabled?
Authored by: reu1000 on Jan 26, '02 10:09:47PM

I unfortunately did the same thing and followed the tip from eagle_eyes, but it still does not seem quite right. If I start up terminal and try to edit a file such as crontab in pico without typing sudo, it does nothing to stop me. Typing: "cd /private/etc", then "pico crontab" it goes directly into the editor. What can I do to fix this and protect me from my own stupidity?

I think you'll find that you won't be able to write out to /etc/crontab using ^o... try cd /var/cron. That you won't be able to do without root permissions
