What's the rationale (again?) for disabling root login?
I assume its to make sure that if your LDAP or NIS services fail you
are totally screwed and cannot rescue the machine.

Proposed alternative: enable root logins, but customize the default root
GUI environment so it is a clear and simple rescue/configuration workspace,
not just another user's desktop.
+1 Great idea!!!
Default root desktop with only System --> administration, Terminal and some text editors
Identical in both Gnome and KDE..
