People don't usually log in as root. They use "su" to become root when necessary. Which login menu are you talking about? Maybe there's some documentation for it somewhere that will tell you how to do that (if you really want to).

Dexter, what GUI do you use, KDE or Gnome? For KDE go to the control center -> system -> login-manager -> users. Until I am mistaken, here is the place to get root displayed. Gnome and the others I don't know, search for the configuration file of gdm and have a look at that. Might be there are easier ways, but I don't use Gnome.
