Sorry I didn't make it in time.
But the others are right.
When you begin with the login prompt when you first boot up, you can login as root, by typing root of course then the password. But the safest way is to su (or use sudo and can learn more about it here http://www.courtesan.com/sudo/
) into root for those types of privileges, then logout when your done so while your logged in as root, you can't do damage by accident to your OS.
