Update Problem

I am a rookie with a brief question.  I have been able to enter Adept using 
my password, however, if I enter the terminal and type in su, my password is 
refused.  Is this because I have not created a su password?  If so, how do I 
do that?  I have been locked out of Adept before and was required to format 
to solve the problems I was having.  This sounds like a way to get back into 
the system to fix  it should it ever happen again.  Thanks for any response.
