    try this:

    -hold down Alt and press F2
    -in resultant run popup, type and enter

    Code:
    gnomesu nautilus
    -it should ask for your root pass and you are off..
    (well, it *should* ask, because i do hope you have NOT logged into
    Gnome as the root user)

    note: if you come from another distro (i *think* this is an openSUSE
    specific thing) you also need to know the special recipe in KDE would
    be "kdesu [something]"....(i forget the reason, has something to do
    with attaching windows or something geeky)


    > How do i find which version is my gnome??


    not sure (haven't used Gnome in a long while), but i *think* if you
    open nautilus (or any 'core' parts of gnome) and go Help > About the
    version of nautilus and gnome itself are the same...(i know that works
    in KDE with (say) KWrite, etc)
