Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am an experienced Linux user, but have never used Salix before. I have a root account set up on my other Linux distros, but can not figure it out using Salix. The reason I want a root account in Salix because I believe in freedom of choice, and my choice always was and always will be to have a root account set up so I can login as root. I am aware of the risk involed in creating a root account.
Could someone PLEASE instruct me how to create a root account in Salix ?
I don't know about Salix, but on Slackware a root account is all that you have after an install. Do they do something different?
yes they are doing something different, the login screen says root can not login at that screen. I went to the Salix chat, there were a couple of users there that knew the secret of it but did not want to share it. I think Salix is a hard nose place something simular to aptosid. Not friendly in other words.....I know I shouldn't be saying that though.
