2. i can`t run EGG DROP`s like ROOT, only like user but i want to be in root!

3. I have got digital photoaparat (AIPTEK POCKET CAM 3M) and when I turn it on and I connect it to computer, the linux don`t recognize it, so I can`t see pictures on it?!

4. I have got set up my resolution, but something is not O.K.!

This is really not recommended. Especially for a server. Only the superuser should have root permissions. If you are logging in as a normal user and are tired of constantly typing 'su -', root password, and then doing whatever you want, then you can try sudo. I use it because I'm lazy, but my laptop is not a server and is well protected from the outside world.

So really, is it _that_ much trouble to type the root password every once in a while?

1. su -
password

2. What is Egg Drop and why do you want to be root?

3. I tried to google for that and nothing came up. Maybe it is not supported. More information if you have it.

4. Start -> System Settings -> Display -> Enter Password -> you can change your resolution.

5. SuSe can be used as a web server. You will want to install only what is needed for a particular server.

6. I don't think dreamweaver will work in wine. You can write web pages using any of the text editors to hand code it. AbiWord, Bluefish, OpenOfiice, etc.
