Linux How to add a new user to sudo group in openSuse 12.3?

Hi All,
I have created a openSUSE 12.3 VM in my VirtualBox. I have created one user and added that user to my group.

Is there any command by which I can add that user to sudoers user group like we do in ubuntu?

#sudo adduser user1 sudo

I checked the /etc/groups file, but there is no sudo group as such. I am using the KDE in opensuse.

I appreciate your valuable comments,

Thanks,
Sanzee

sudo users are in the /etc/sudoers file, however you shouldn't edit it directly, use the command visudo
