well when i installed ubuntu the one thing i hated was that i could not 
login as root.
hated it.
so i found i work around.
1. start your computer and select the recovery option from grub.
2. now you are automatically root.
3. change the root password.[ iam not sure about the command since it was 
some time ago but i think it is passwd.
4. enter the new password
5. now restart your computer
6.login to gnome as a regular user
7.go to system --->admininstration---->login screen setup go to security and and root to login.
9. restart and login as root.
have fun
