    Angry No Admin Privledges in any account

    Hi,

    I just set my PC to Dual-boot with MS Windows XP Home Edition and Ubuntu Linux 8.04 Desktop. I kinda mucked up when setting up accounts for other users as I now have no Admin privileges on the admin account, or on any of the other accounts. How do I fix this????

    Reboot your computer in Recovery Mode(Select it from the grub menu).
    and execute this commands from the root shell
    Code:
    addgroup username admin
    exit
    replace username with your user name
    select the resume normal boot option from the menu.
