1. sudo -i
2. type in *your* password.
3. you're root.
Ubuntu uses sudo (like many modern Unices, like Mac OS X). The stages
you'll go through are the following:
1. Confusion (current stage)
2. Anger ("I'm not a child! Give me root account!")
3. Denial (you'll create a root account by doing sudo passwd)
4. Acceptance (Well, OK, I'll try it like this for a while.)
5. Then you like it.
Trust me on this one.
