Being root

In unix I am used to logging on as root when I need to do a series of 
administrative tasks, aware of the danger.
New to linux, I haven't found a way of logging on as root or su'ing to 
root. When I installed I did not enter a root password and that makes it 
difficult to log in.

How does one set the root password, or is this never done ?
