"Jack" is a user.  Sudo runs commands as root.  Try sudo <command> while
you're logged in as "jack".

Hi I just installed SUDO     and I have a few questions. I made a user alias
in the sudoers file and gave him the all root permission with the follow
User_Alias   FULL = jack
 when i try to login with the password
sudo jack
it ask for my password and after I supply my password then it says 
sudo jack command not found.
Did something wrong.
Thanks Phil Gates
