Bad Idea! Use SUDO instead
Authored by: Steff-X on Jul 25, '02 06:01:20PM

Just a precision with sudo: you cannot use sudo if your account is not listed in the sudoers file, which is the case for non-admin accounts. In this case, first use su to login as an admin user (admin users are listed in the sudoers file), then you can use sudo.
