    I can't say that I've ever used KDE extensively, so someone who has will have to help you instead.

    if you forget your root password it is easy to erase....... with red hat linux 8.0 you can boot off the redhat linux cd into rescue mode and alter /etc/shadow ....... once you have done this correctly the root password will be removed

    and yes, the root user is unsafe for users who aren't total competant in what they are doing...... you have total control when logged in as root .... i only use it when i absolutely need to

    Use chown to change the ownership to your user so you can acess them or you can chmod them to give read/write permissions to all users. Might also want to use the users option in fstab so normal users can mount/unmount them.
