Hi James, 
thanks for your answer. 
It happens when I open the Control Manager and go to the YaST2 modules to 
configure some hardware and so on. The same if I go to the system 
administration -> login manager and want to access the administration mode. 
also when i am in the kwifimanager and when i try to change the wireless 
settings it asks for the root password. 
sudo would allow me a very fine grained access control to administrative tasks 
vi the /etc/sudoers file instead of handing out the root password. 
so if i could replace it would be great. 
kind regards
