Hi!  Add the user to the group `wheel' in /etc/group.  Suppose I want
to su to root; so I add `kelly' to wheel:

	wheel:*:0:root,mary,kelly

Then I login as kelly and type `su'.

I can still recall old Mister Barnslow getting out every morning and
nailing a fresh load of tadpoles to the old board of his. Then he'd
spin it round and round, like a wheel of fortune, and no matter where
it stopped he'd yell out, "Tadpoles! Tadpoles is a winner!" We all
thought he was crazy. But then we had some growing up to do.
