    hmm.. why would you want to logon as root. You can do all that root can in your user account with the
    Code:
    su
    command. I have to also state that running your PC as root is very dangerous. Each to their own though. What errors do you get?

    JaRaEeZ is right, you don't need to login as root. But still if you want to do that you have to go in the Mandrake Control Center/System/Display manager and chose "GDM" then exit the Control Center and go to "Start/System/Configuration/Boot and Init/GDM Configurator" and in the "Security" tab make a tick on the first line (allow root ...) !
