root gui konqueror

hello there. I use mandy 10 and i was wondering how to access a graphical file browser like konqueror with root capabilities...or, how to set one of my users to have the same priviledges as root as far as mounting and entering device folders.

In KDE there is a rooted konqueror shortcut, I think it's in utilities or System or somthing - look around in the KDE menu.

EDIT: Mine's in System -> More apps -> File Manager: super user mode

If you can't find a short cut of some sort, you could type kdesu konqueror
