Given the fact that sudo is a time honored UNIX method of granting super
user privileges to normal users, it is well documented in man pages and
at tldp.org and personally, I think it's unfair to ask general usage
questions for something that is so well documented.

Considering that what you are asking is to give away the farm on your
system to other users, I would suggest that you become intimately
familiar with using sudo so you can be specific about what you are
allowing people to do rather than just a wholesale grant of superuser
privileges as that is the only way you can control what users can do on
your systems.
