Hungh! I must have been snoozing. What, pray tell, is RedHat-ish about
using 'sudo su -' to become root as opposed to 'su -'.? Red Hat does
create a root password atinstall time, so the sudo method is
completely optional. And what does that have to do with Windows where
most users run with full administrator rights at all times?
