Can someone please tell me how to login in to get administrator privlages.
I have a 300 gig Hdd (external) that I plug into the USB port but I can't access the Hdd because it says I don't have adminstrator privledges, how do I get those privledges to read the Hdd. It won't let me login in as root when I start the system

Thank you,
