OK, I found out how to create a root password, did that, 
used visudo and put my username in using the line shown in 
the newsforge review ([username] ALL=(ALL) ALL) but I still 
can't get the Admin button to work in Control Center. It 
still does not accept my user password (or the root 
password). I know I can use sudo kcontrol to get into 
Control Centre with Admin privileges but why do I have to 
resort to a command line at all?
