    To log in as root, at the login screen type root, and then the root password. Or you can open a terminal and type su, and then enter the root password when prompted. Not sure on detecting the kernel version except for when you see it load on bootup, definately another way to tell though

    Thanx

    Thank you for your help...as far as logging in as root if it were as simple as typing in root i would have done so...but i cannot, it is the graphical login screen and i simply click TriggerGuard and then i am prompted for a password...i will try the su command thank you jeremy and genesus
    Thanx,
    TriggerGuard
