How to do i change the user permissions..

Hi everyone,

There are couple of users of which i need to give 2 of the users admin rights so that they are able to run the administration commands like "zoneadm" and locale.
When logged in as root i am obviously able to do that.please suggest any way by which the other 2 user's permissions can be changed so that they too are able to run the above commands.
