"There is no root?" Technically that's incorrect, there is always the root
user of the system, even if the root account is disabled for terminal/console
login.  Root login in disabled by default in Ubuntu, though that can easily
be changed.  I have heard reports of people having to log in root to get 
audio applications to use realtime due to various bugs, I would recommend
that any machine used this way never be networked.
