How can I give full access to a user as root have in red hat 5

I created a user using command adduser
but the user created doesn't have all permission as root has
When I right click on any folder or file the "Make Link" option is disabled
I want newly created user to have all the rights as root user has

You can achive this goal by editing your /etc/passwd and modify the UID to 0 for that perticular user.

I hope this should work, but It is not a recommendad way and its a wrong way.

Give SUDO access to the user.

visudo is the command to achive this goal.

how did you find that you dont have the root privileges.

try to execute any command from /sbin/, you will get success. There will not be aby issue.

If you want to create link for any file then you can use the ln command. What is the problem in that.

SUDO is a secure way to give full root access or limited root access to a particular user.
