i am using ubuntu 11.04 ,but when i try to save a file to root folder i don't have permission for that.
Basically when i try to access the root through terminal it asks for a password which i don't know ,so how can i know that password.
And if you want further advice on how to blow your system's head off, through the careless use of super-power, feel free to inquire further. (What's an ordinary user doing on the "sudoers" list, anyhow?)
According to some of the posts I've read, Ubuntu creates a random secret passwd for root and automatically creates the first std user with full rights via sudo ... yeah it's dumb/non-std, but that's what they do (or did..).
