Description dnash62 2000-12-12 20:41:11 UTC
After assigning a user su rights including access to linuxconf, I exit, log in as the new user, open terminal, issue "su" and enter root
password.  The problem is that access to linuxconf is not allowed "command not found", even when I enter the directory where linuxconf
is located I receive the same error.

Your PATH does not change unless you use "su -" to get root access.  The current
directory is not in the default PATH (as a security measure).  Use "su -" and
"linuxconf" to start linuxconf, or "su", and "/sbin/linuxconf".
