You will have to read the xauth man page - it shows you most of the
options. You can also disable some of the X security using the xhost
command. For example, running "xhost +localhost" in an xterm will
open access to everyone on the local machine. (This HAS to be run by
a user that can connect to the X server.)

I wonder why you are having this problem. In F7, if I open an xterm,
run "su -" to become root, and then run an X command, it works fine
for me. I am drawing a blank about what to ask to figure out how
your setup is different then the standard setup.
