You need to know the directory were man pages for sudo are located
( on my machine it is /usr/local/man ) and give a command
man -M <man_dir> name
In my case it would be
man -M /usr/local/man sudo
You have to edit sudoers file in order to grant/revoke sudo privileges but
you should use visudo program for that. Your users log in as themselves and
then use sudo to execute some commands as root/other user
Everything is possible.

Subject: Sudo access control
I have successfully run 'make install' and I am still not clear with a
couple of things.
1. How do I get my sudo man pages to work? ie man visudo etc.
2. I know I am supposed to now edit my sudoers file after running 'make
install'. But how then does sudo globally controll access on my box. i.e If
a person logs on , do they now logon to native unix or first the sudoers
file. Is access to the box then strictly controlled by sudo and if so how
does it do that?
3. Is it not possible for someone to twitch sudo and still get onto the
Thanx for your
