[sudo-users] sudoers set-up

We would to use "sudo" so we don't have to give out our root password to
our staff. We are on HP-UX 11.23 Itanium.

I've been trying to configure our "sudoers" and still having problem.
When I try to use the command "sudo -l", I get the error: sudo - must be
setuid root

It would probably help to have a slight bit more info about your
environment, such as platform and uses/intentions for sudo (ie. how are
you planning on using it?).

On most UN*X platforms, "man sudoers" should give you a lot of ideas and
a few examples... the sudo distribution also tends to come with a file
called "sample.sudoers" or "sudoers.example" or similar (been a while
since I've looked at it, sorry).
