Hi list:

I'm a Red Hat user of many years and have just installed Ubuntu.  Looks 
slick but I have just one question, how do you logon as root as nowhere 
during the install did I have the chance to set the root password!  I 
wish to configure/install tweak and generally play with the system, and 
get the Video card operational.  Have I missed something? :)

Regards Wayne
