In the file /etc/pam.d/gdm, find the line that has the
suffix " user != root quiet" and just delete that
suffix. Now root can login and you can be badgered by
hordes of anal-retentive security freaks about how
unsafe that is because X toolkits are horribly insecure
(wait, wouldn't that mean it was unsafe to login
as any user if I don't want security holes giving
access to that user's data? :-).
