right after you type su, you have to type the root password, which should be root.. I don't remmeber what it was for the SuSE live cd.. Pretty sure it was root.

and anytime.. the man pages can get a little thick sometimes (it took me about 3 weeks before I knew they existed, and about another 2 before they started making sense!)

It still isn't responding.
It's probably me.
I have tried typing 'su root' then hit 'enter'
'su' then hit 'enter' then type 'root' then hit 'enter' again
I have even tried suroot.
No luck though

Re: "man pages" I don't quite no what you mean, some kind of wiki guide?
I have ordered "linux for dummies" it won't arrive for a couple of weeks. But hopefully I will improve. Not sure if it's any good or not.
