Root password for internet access


Hey guys,
I wanted to know if there is a way that when I log online using KPPP to avoid being prompted for
the root password?
I use RedHat 8 with Gnome as root and KDE for my account. I have a launch for KPPP but everytime
I use it it asks for the password.
Thanks.
