You have to logout and for the login name type root and for the password, the password you chose. Don't login as root on a regular bases, you should always login as a use and not as root.

If i remember correctly...When I installed aim for a friend of mline on SUSE 9.1 AIM didnt add an application launcher in the menu for me either. You can simply run aim from a terminal window with the command aim, or make your own application launcher in the menu. I dont use KDE so your on your own with that, but it should be as simple as right clicking on the menu clicking an option to add an application launcher.
