    any easy way to do this without having to let kde remeber the password?

    i have thought about editing the sudoers file but i can't get the syntax right...


    im using a debian based version of linux,...
    the sticky bit also is NOT enabled on the directory, and even when i chmod 777 it still prompts fro root password...
    any help?
    thanks

    you should add dialup group to your user profile.also set the uid bit and gid bit after chmod 777 to /etc/pppd.

    thanks a bunch =) -- nt

    nt = no text, no text in the body of the message,
    and yes it worked... i can't believe i couodn't figure out how to do something so easy...
    the actual i had two group names, one was dip, the other was dialout.

    dip worked. i haven't tried dialout yet. what is the dip group for?
