Hi Huibert,

Yes, the path is correct, actually the problem was that when I launched
the command by command line I forget to put sudoedit before.

Anyway, now sudo seems to be more friendly. :)

To sum up what we said about sudo:
-never use vi, but sudoedit to edit file
-always use absolute path
- always deny general access and then allow the specific command
-put aways one more * when use sudoedit in order to avoid to open more
that one file. (/usr/binsudoedit /etc/samba/* *)
