To enable root login you have to do
"sudo passwd"
But there's really no reason to do that,
and you can use sudo -s or sudo gnome-terminal if
you want a root session.

Xorg is pretty good at autosensing modlines, you 
could try to just remove the HSync and VSync values from
Post you xorg.conf file if you want more help.
