any ideas before I have to reinstall ubuntu?
Did you already have the account that was created when you installed--or was "oem" the very first account you created?
The first account created on a Ubuntu install has "sudo" powers. Also, enabling the root account is easy:
sudo passwd root
enter user password
at the prompt, enter the new root password.
If this is a brand-new install, then it may, in fact, be easist to re-install.
