I just installed sudo 1.6.3 over here on one of my servers and I am giving chown, chgrp, and passwd access to the webmaster to deal with customer webpage issues.  I have it so that sudo will recognize his account but when I try to do anything outside of his home directory I get the following message:

$ chown root cam.jpg
chown: cam.jpg: Operation not permitted

Why am I getting this error?  Any help will be listened to!
