   I gave it a try, and here's what I received back;

Pirates-Cove:~ paul$ sudo -l
User paul may run the following commands on this host:
     (ALL) ALL
     (root) NOPASSWD: ALL
Pirates-Cove:~ paul$

   If I understand this correctly, it seems to be saying that the  
user paul can run all commands, and root may run all commands without  
a password.  The only thing I don't see is a reference to the print
