It is asking for the password of the first user that you created, which is able to become root user under ubuntu.

It's not asking for the root password, but for the password of the user that is running sudo.

Following the thread, http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual_us..._clamav_centos

"Next we switch to this user

su vmail
sudo yum install libtool postgresql-devel gdbm-devel pam-devel expect openldap-devel"

Why does it need to sudo yum? yum is not a user in my CentOS at all.

yum is not a user, but a command. Please see
Code:
man sudo
