In case you don’t have sudo installed already the installation is very simple as it is part of the official debian package repository: http://packages.qa.debian.org/s/sudo.html

Installation:

aptitude install sudo

Configuration files:

/etc/sudoers

Default configuration:

# /etc/sudoers
#
# This file MUST be edited with the 'visudo' command as root.
#
# See the man page for details on how to write a sudoers file.
#

Defaults        env_reset

# Host alias specification

# User alias specification

# Cmnd alias specification

# User privilege specification
root    ALL=(ALL) ALL

This covers the installation. You might want to check the sudo article on how you can use this.
