    Is there an error when you try todelete something?

    Also, you can try "su -", that will give you root's path, not just it's priviliges.

    Code:
    [cool@hathway cool]$ su
    Password:
    [root@hathway cool]# cd Desktop
    [root@hathway Desktop]# ls
    crc/  Home.desktop  Trash/  Welcome.desktop love80's
    [root@hathway Desktop]# chmod 777 crc
    [root@hathway Desktop]# cd crc
    [root@hathway crc]# ls
    crc*  crclient*  README*
    [root@hathway crc]# ./crclient -u james
    ./crclient: already logged in with process id 2338
    [root@hathway crc]#
    [root@hathway crc]#
    I am getting this error even as root

    ./crclient: already logged in with process id 2338


    this is the file with which i login into my broadband network.

    I deleted the file /var/log/crclient.log as my network admin suggested
    because the system was shut down because of my mistake in a non proper way

    Any help pl. i am having to shuffle between mandrake and windows to
    post my queries.. lol

    I want to login as root right from the begining or have root rights right fromthe begining when my pc boots.
    I put my id - cool as member of adm, root
    primary gp adm

    Still

    yes I was getting the error ... no permission .something.

    But as root somehow managed to delete the crclient log file.
    Thats telling the PC that I am logged in when actually i am not.
