Add a user in a sudoer list

In most Unix/Linux system, the suoder file is /etc/sudoers.

1. Login as a normal user.
2. Type/enter "su" followed by a root password.
3. Open /etc/sudoers using vi or any editor and include a line

freeman ALL=(ALL) ALL

which will provide all the administration authority of the system to the user, "freeman".
