I actually never understood this problem because in the Application 
menu, under 'System Tools' there is "Root Terminal" is there not?  So I 
don't understand everyone who says that root is disabled?  (Or perhaps I 
enabled it early on without thinking and now I can't remember anymore..?)

Also 'su' just works for me..  The only problem really is with the 
regular windows where you move and copy files.  Because the whole 
environemtn doesn't run as root this whole file management business is a 
bit of a toy / joke really.
