Logging in as a root???
I've just installed Mandrake Linux 9.2 on my laptop (Dell inspiron 8200) and I managed to set dual boot along with Win XP. However, there is a problem with the display, my screen is very small when booting with Linux.
I found out from other threads that I need to edit the file /etc/lilo.conf and to change the vga to 791, but when I do that it woun't allow me to save the changes (read-only file) as I'm logged in as a user not root. So, how can I log in as root in Linux.?
It's confusing because during the installation process I set the user login and password but for the administrator it asked for a password only??? and also when booting with Linux some times it's not asking for login details???
