try editing the file /etc/shadow and remove the password in the "root" user name and then reboot and login as root ...

Can you check from the terminal for me the following
1) Does /etc/sysconfig/desktop exist
2) Please post the output of /etc/sysconfig/desktop (in other words cat out the file)

**EDIT**
If this file does not exist create it, and put in it the following
DISPLAYMANAGER=KDE

Now go ahead and reboot and see if this fixes your problem
