   Hi Micha,

   Thank you for your suggestion.  Here is my current complete  
sudoers file.  I have been trying to modifiy it so that na  
application which asks for a local admin name and password will no  
longer ask for it and just run.

# sudoers file.
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
# See the sudoers man page for the details on how to write a sudoers  

# Host alias specification

# User alias specification

# Cmnd alias specification
Cmnd_Alias PRINTING = /Applications/PrintScrip.app

# Defaults specification

# Runas alias specification

# User privilege specification
root    ALL=(ALL) ALL
%admin  ALL=(ALL) ALL

# Uncomment to allow people in group wheel to run all commands
# %wheel        ALL=(ALL)       ALL

# Same thing without a password
# %wheel        ALL=(ALL)       NOPASSWD: ALL

# Samples
# %users  ALL=/sbin/mount /cdrom,/sbin/umount /cdrom
# %users  localhost=/sbin/shutdown -h now

   Is there anything I should post?

   Thank you,
