if you are talking about root user you don't. You can disable root user login and have sudo setup to manage your machine.

Do you mean the root user account? Removing the root user account would be a remarkably bad idea.

From your other thread:

1. Switch off your computer must press the F8 button the entire time becomes a link: correction
4.Then reset the computer to link
As a number of us cannot figure out what you are talking about, could you expand upon this?
