what part of logging in are you having trouble with? Are you using the su command while logged in as another user?

Many of the Linux distros do not allow root login in run level 5 for security reasons.
Prominently debian based do not allow this but red hat based do.
If you need to perform admin tasks you can use su or sudo for the purpose.
