Can you become Root while in Konqueror?

There's gotta be a way to switch over to work as root while using the Konqueror file manager, right? I've tried but I can't find it in KDE 3.2.1

There should be a "File Manager -Super User Mode" under "System" in the start menu.
Or just type "konqueror" as root in a terminal.
