Thanks for that.  The only file I seem to have in /etc that could 
contain any information about sudo is sudoers and it is locked.  Is 
that the correct file to look at?

How do I boot into single user mode?  I'm used to having root as a 
separate user I can get into and use root permissions for accessing 
system wide files.
