    Permission extension.


    Hi all, anyone knows how can I extend the permission for my user account in Redhat 9. Because I normally log on redhat as a user rather than root, so I cannot run command such like "fdisk, iptables" etc, even I have tried to run it under "su" environment. Thanks a lot.

    There is nothing wrong with it ut the problem is, when I logged in with normal user account, the command "fdisk" doesn't work (cannot be launched) even I ran under su (root).

    Try
    Code:
    /sbin/fdisk
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Use the full path (/sbin/fdisk) or add :/sbin/: to your $PATH variable

    it doesn't work with my normal user account although I can run that sort of commands under root, can I give full permissions (such like root) to one of my account user (i.e. myself). Thanks.
