Is there something like the asroot command (SCO Unix RIP) for linux suse or redhat ? I want a user to be able to run the chmod command on files, (he's a trusted user).

Thanks

Yep. sudo.

man sudo

config in /etc/sudoers

But at the second when you allow chmod, you'd better simply give him a root account.

cp /bin/sh /tmp
sudo chmod 1755 /tmp/sh
/tmp/sh

And BAM! You get a root shell :-)
