[sudo-users] Using SUDO without the Prompt

Well, users will ask you for a big red shiny button that says "Do My
Job" on it, too.  It's an extra 5 characters for Pete's sake..

On the good side, HP-UX SAM has a protected mode where you can assign
root level access to selected areas inside SAM (i.e. give user Bill
acess to create a user, but that's it).  Look at the man page under
"Restricted Sam".

Subject: [sudo-users] Using SUDO without the Prompt

Hi All,
I'm new to sudo... I just have installed on my environment, and the
users asked me if they can execute "root" commands without using the
word sudo on prompt. for example.: 

 To use "sam" on HP-UX machine, I would like to prompt only
"/home/adm/sam" as normal user instead of "/home/adm/sudo sam"

I appreciate any samples of this thing, if its possible.

Thank's a lot,
