1. I think you can:
Type in terminal :

Code:
sudo passwd root
and enter the password for root user and from next time you can use username “root” and this password to login or use su to have root access.

2. Type alsamixer and see if the volumes are maxed out. Else you will need the gstreamer codecs. I would suggest add RPMFusion repo.

As Fedora versions only last 13 mths, I'd recommend Centos as a more stable long term solution.
Centos is the free version of Redhat, so it'll be similar to Fedora.

2nd Centos, unless you enjoy do clean installs on all those machines once a year.
