I'm using FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE and I have multiple user accounts set up.
I made about 4 for myself to use and do various testing with, and made
some for my Wife as well because She knows UNIX better than I do anyway heh.
Anyway, one of the things I forgot about, was that FreeBSD by default
doesn't allow just anyone to use su.
I come from mainly using Linux, where you can log in and then whenever
you need to open a root xterm or even a root shell, you just type the
password and go. I looked up how to do this but most of my results came
back with setting up user accounts, and other things. I did add another
user that was in the wheel group so I could do it, but I'd really like
to be able to add my main user account to the wheel group so I can su
from this one instead of doing su otheruser and then su again to root.
I found while searching for this something that MIGHT be what I'm
looking for, but after reading it over, it seems I'd have to read
through the whole man page first and then, it could be bad if I mistype
something, or I could even screw up an account, which I can't risk.
Is there an exact way to take a user account on my system, and add it to
the wheel group?
