    How do I log in as root?

    Ok, this is probably simple but, how do I log in as root every time I run suse? From lilo I can only log in as home user.
    Single computer. Only one on this box. Not networked to anything else. Pain in the ass to log as root from the desktop every time I need root permissions. I seem to recall a distro I tried a bunch of years ago that would allow me to log in at boot time as root if I needed?
    thanks

    at login screen type root then enter your root password in the password box. you dont want to run as root all the time as you can do some serious damage if your not careful. but that is how you do it.

    the other way is to type linux single at lilo and this will put you straight to a root shell when it boots up.
    And while your doing stupid things with the root account you might want to type rm -rf / and see how stupid it is to be root all the time

    Alastair, you know better than to do that. I will not accept flaming here. If you continue, you do know the consequence. Stop now while your ahead.
