I hate to be blunt about it, but the answer is to find a distro that 
doesn't lock you out of root. PCLinuxOS is one such. You'll still have 
to put in a password to
become the admin, or to load programs from Synaptic, but you do have the 
opportunity, which, as I understand it, you do not have in Ubuntu.
