The root account is disabled when you first install Ubuntu. The first user created during the installation has administrative rights on the system, and can run programs as root with sudo, using only their normal user password. For example:
#sudo apt-get update.

If you wish to use the root account in more traditional UNIX fashion, you can set the root password by typing:
#sudo passwd root
This will allow you to use su or login as root on the console.
If you need a shell with root privileges, run
#sudo -s.

All uses of sudo will require the user's password.

dang still didn't work
On bootup I get 2 errors stating something todo with modprobe that I got 2 separate fatal errors saying something along the lines of Fatal Error Inserting PCIEHP ,and the other is Fatal Error Inserting SHPCHP,im not sure what they mean but it says this during boot up. also I know I should use another post for this question to,but I also get a error at the end of installing some packages using synaptic telling me my locale is not right and that another locale needs to be used, anyway if anyone is familiar at all with these problems could I get an answer to know if they are something that is worth worrying about ? Thankyou

if you imply that distro cannot recognize smartcards for laptops then for that matter you need to install discover package
