cant login to blackbox as root


alright, i installed blackbox recently on my older laptop and its been working great. I wanted to login to it as root today so that i could add some more packages, but, when i entered everything into the xdm login screen and hit enter, it almost immediately dumped me back to the xdm screen with a message in the bottom right that says "debian PAM_unix[261]: (xdm) session closed for user root". I can login in as a normal user just fine, but cant get blackbox to open as root. the only thing i can think of is that i was toying with the xsession file trying to make wmapm load up automatically on startup and maybe i messed something up....

alright i fixed that problem (it was the xsession file) but now i have a new question: i use xdm as my desktop manager, and whenever i want to shutdown or restart i have to drop to the console and enter the command. Is there a way to add shutdown support straight to XDM??? also, can i add themes to it to make it a little less bland???
