Root Help


I just got my ethernet card installed (I didnt push hard enough) and when i try to log in I can only log in as dustin, which isn't root. How do I make it so I can see the root username on the loginscreen? Or how I can login to root.. Thanks..btw... I also need help configing Apache FTP and HTTP server. I cant find it anywhere. thanks

Not sure what you mean. To log in as root just type "root" then enter your root password, which I would assume would be the same as your user name password.

I doesn't matter if you login from a graphical login, or from the command line. It is the same procedure. Not sure if this is what you want? Could you explain your problem a little bit more?
