Basic Sudo Issue!!

We are a small team of co-op students with no sudo experience. Recently we
have been forced to use it as the only method of solving a particular
problem. Namely, we need to run "ipchains" when logged in as an user other
Mainly by looking at examples, we were able to patch the following sudoers
file together. Yet we can't get it to work. We want for the dummy1, dummy2
users to be able to run Ipchains without a password.
# Host alias specification
# User alias specification
# Cmnd alias specification
# Defaults specification
# User privilege specification
root ALL=(ALL) ALL
We are not sure if we should specify =(root), because IPchains can be run by
the root only.
?? IPCHAIN_ADMIN ALL = NOPASSWD: FW_SCRIPT
?? IPCHAIN_ADMIN ALL=(root) FW_SCRIPT
Can anyone tell us if this is correct. Also, how do we actually use sudo
from the command prompt? We've tried typing "sudo ipchains - L" when logged
in as the user "dummy1", but we get a "command not found" error?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
