>/etc/group.  Put your name at the end of the line beginning with "wheel".

Well he may also be thinking about the .netrc and .rhosts files which reside
in / for root access? This would allow su to move between machines without

The problem with modern technology is not only that it is changing so fast but
that because of specialized fields and their associated 'specialty languages', 
we don't understand, decisions are 'made for us'. To maintain our freedom 
a way must be found to inform and educate everyone about the rapid changes,
the multi-disciplinary decisions, and their effect.
