Well, from the main login page, simply type "root" for username and the password when it asks for the password. If you have already logged in as a non-root user, you can simply bring up a terminal (like Konsole) and type in "su" (which stands for substitute user) and when it asks for the password, type in the root password.
Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
