Hi Folks,

This is a little off the subject, but here goes. Sri.

I always found using sudo on Ubuntu to be a pain. I "grew up" using su to 
root, do what need to be done, and then exiting to get out of the root shell.

Here is a little trick I use to give root a valid password on Ubuntu.
Just run:
"sudo sh"

You will get a shell as root, and can then run
"passwd" to set a root password.

I know... security.
