I plan to use this on Suse (if I can get past the problem that X on suse does not allow me to su to root and start a GUI program!) as well, thus, it will be cool if it is not a Mandrake specific object, or solution.

redhat/fedora also uses a system that prompts the user for the root password (with a gui) before running certain programs as root. a little digging reveals it's the work of PAM's userhelper.

i would doubt this was specific or unique to fedora.
