This can be done by adding multiple users of root priviledge
#useradd -o -u 0 <username>
the Group Id & User ID can be changed as required.

This brings up a curious questoin for me. How do most companies do 
system administration if there is more then one admin? Does every admin 
know the root password, or how do you setup multiple root accounts? Or 
what is the standard for this?
