Just yesterday i installed mandriva 2009.
Yes ,it didn't allow me login as root in login screen.- Looks like they have provided it as security.
Anyway , once you login as normal user.Checkout tools option from start menu and click on terminal ....you can use su command to go for root mode...
That's what i did when i needed to mount partition which has movies...BTW mandriva
--Really rocks I can see dvd movies with out any issues
I'm very much impressed with it.
