Hi Mathew,

There is a very easy way to solve your problem in Red Hat Linux OS.

You just need to use simple commands from your graphs or CUI terminal  is that given below

# su <user name>
# su – <user name >

The difference between the two commands is that the first one can preserve the before user privilege and the second one will take new user's privilege.
