On Ubuntu it dosnt allow you to specifically log in as root. for safty reasons every time you want to use root you sudo.

uh.. yeah it does you have to have a root pass set to login as root

Code

sudo passwd root





then you can SU

You're not logging in as root, as sudo is an entirely different process. Hence why it is sudo and not su.

YES I know
but hence passwd root
maybe you are not familiar with the passwd command?
it changes the password of the user

Code

allan@haxer:~$ sudo passwd root
Enter new UNIX password:
Retype new UNIX password:
passwd: password updated successfully
allan@haxer:~$ su
Password:
root@haxer:/home/allan*

is this a liveCD install? otherwise I am wondering if you just missed the root access. When you install Linux it will ask you for root password (only) THEN it will prompt you to make a user account. This is because running Linux as root is like running windows as administrator...just plain stupid. the only thing root is needed for is base installs, hardware changes and the likes. so all you would do is type
Code
su


then the root password. if you need any more help PM me I can explain it a little better...I use Debian (The base of Ubuntu) and SuSE incase you are wondering
