I need to be able to log in as root to do my job!

Why?

What, specifically, do you need to do that requires you to log in as root to do
your job?

(This isn't meant to be confrontational. This is intended to find out exactly
why you think you need to log in as root, so we can tell you how to do things
the right way.  "How does a new guy learn?" and all that.)

With the help provided I can now log in as root. in F 11. Where I am trying to get to may or may not be a problem in F 11 but, beyond a doubt was in F 10! Trying to install Flash 10 in Opera required a start from within the X11 environment. I never did figure out how to do that.

Now in Fedora 11 I am trying to figure out that problem. Yep, I am a Newbie who only has two websites running on Linux platforms in my living room! I am really trying to learn the inner workings of Linux.

Thanks for the Help. I can at least Putty in as root now! BTW, my job keeps me away from my servers about 255 days per year so logging in as root is very important!

Thanks All!
