Exclamation login root problem

hi to all, im new in this forum, i would jst like to ask if how to log in as root in 1 line command, like in mysql -u <usr> -p <password>, its the only way "i think (for me)" that i can print with this command:

echo "hello world" > /dev/lp0

..or is there anyway that normal user can print, w/o restriction with the above command? please help... Thanks in advance..
