being root



computer hp pavilion 9000 started with f10 live cd. then onto install on hd, was asked for root password at the beginning of install. did so. root password works inside a terminal as needed. d/l and install open office from their website. during install of oo i am asked for root password. the popup disappears when i click on ok. and i cannot put in password for root anywhere. when i tried to log in as root my password is not authenticated. how can i become root everywhere than just in a terminal box. this is private computer not used by anyone else.
thank you.
