    You don't really need to login as root. You can do everything whilst logged in as a normal user. If you need root privileges, you can switch to root by using "su -" or "su -c" in the command line. Alternatively you can run apps as root by using the kdesu command e.g. "kdesu konqueror". If you really need to login to a GUI as root, then run Kcontrol -> System Administration -> Login Manager and change the settings for root.
