    @sarumont: The first thing I did was to add this to /etc/suauth:
    root:ALL EXCEPT GROUP wheel:DENY
    That means that not everybody can su root, only those in the wheelgroup. And I am in the wheel-group, I have been since I created the user "jaboua". The option SU_WHEEL_ONLY also had to be "no" to su root from ANYBODY not in the root-group. I guess it was allready configured when I did stage3, but not with the stage1...
