Root login


ok, im trying to login as a root user at the user screen in mandrake 10, but all i have is a profile picture. I dont have any line to type in "root".

My question is, how do i login as root if there is no prompt?

"Configure my desktop">system>login manager>users tab then hit the adminstrator mode button at the bottom, input your root password and uncheck root as a hidden user.

Close the dialogue boxes etc.

Then on reboot you should have root and user showing as possible GUI login's.

regards

John
