As far as I know that's normal for Ubuntu. You should use the sudo command if you need root access from the command line. There's more info on this here
Yeah. Ubuntu disables the root account by default for various reasons. It's EXTREMELY annoying for people that know what they're doing, but I can (almost) see the merit of doing it for new users (its target audience).
Either way, I'm pretty sure there's a way to enable it.
To enable root, simply type at the terminal:
$ sudo passwd root
(without the $, of course)
It will as you to type a password and retype the password.
From there, you can su in with the password you specified.
Cheers and let us know. :)
