    that is probably the worst way to do it (imo)....but, i guess it would work...

    just short of that might be the idea to set the root password to nothing...then
    anytime asked for the root pass, just hit enter...done!

    i read the arthritis/live alone part and would STRONGLY suggest the blank
    password as preferable over signing in as root...but, admit if you wanna do it
    the same way you did it in M$-DOS 6.0 (and before) it will probably work...but,
    might forever lock you out of using the system as yourself, as a regular
    user...more on that at: http://tinyurl.com/6ry6yd

    w00t! Thank you!!!

    What I did was add a 'Nautilus (Super User)' icon to the panel using the application launcher - with the following as the command(s):

    Code:
    gnomesu nautilus --no-desktop --browser %U
    It asks me for the password, and away you go...

    Works like a charm!

    Hi
    The same as using vi press
    Code:
    write and quit
    <esc>:wq
    write and continue
    <esc>:w
    quit and don't save
    <esc>:q!
    See the man page for vi
