Yes,

Create "normal" user account
Install sudo

and use "sudo" for user account to have root privileges.

Thanks,
Johnson

Since this quacks like a duck: :-)
This would then be a root account.

You could use sudo as Johnson said, or RBAC.

Well if you want to create it for some time and u don have sudo or RBAC.
Just edit the userid of user to 0
and he would Njoy all root rights.

This is illegal though ;)

As mentioned above (post) by changing the "uid" of the user account to "0" .. bit dangerous,
always better you "sudo"

Hi

create a user account and give root permission to that guy in sudo file.

cat /etc/sudoers

User_Alias ADMINS = [ add the user name who wants to enjoy root access ]

root ALL = (ALL) ALL
ADMINS ALL = NOPASSWD: ALL
