 Eliminating Root with Sudo

On Lamp tells us how to eliminate root with sudo.

"sudo is a setuid root wrapper that implements fine-grained access control for commands that need to be run as root. It takes the command you want to run and compares it to its internal list of permissions. If sudo's permissions allow that particular user to run that command, sudo runs that command for you, with its privileges."
