Using the same password for root as the user account
If you use a single user desktop, you might find it convenient to configure [command]`sudo`, so you can use the same password to access *root* as you use for your regular account. To do this, select to be added to the Administration group during installation. To do it at later stage, or to add a different user, use the following procedure:
Become the *root* user:
$ su -
Enter the password for the root account when prompted.
To use your regular password for the root access, run:
# usermod _USERNAME_ -a -G groupname
Replace `_USERNAME_` with your account name
Log off and back on in order to have access to the group.
When [command]`sudo` prompts you for a password, it expects your user password, not the `root` password.
