[sudo-users] HOWTO allow "near-root" access level

I'm teacher of Linux Administration course.

Then, actually the students use a user of "root-group",
to allow them to:
1) start/stop services (named, httpd, proftpd, postfix, squid, sshd,
xinetd, smbd, nfsd, ...)
2) modify config files (named.conf, httpd.conf, ...)
3) read/modify log files (/var/log/*)
4) useradd, userdel, usermod, chown, chmod, chgrp, ...

However, I would like to know if it's possible to configure SUDO to all
these configs.
For example, how to configure SUDO to allow some student to make
maintence of named
(start/stop, modify /var/named/chroot/all subdirs and files, modify
/var/log/messages, ...)

PS: I'm using Fedora Core 2.

Thanks for any help,
