troubles with SU rights
I'm not being very smart here. I have my login name and password but I have no idea what (or if) I was asked for a password creation when using SuperUser. I'm trying to copy files from a CD into a sensetive directory and normal copy and paste won't let me (Nautilis browser). I haven't used SuperUser (su) in such a long time I can't remember how it works.

The default install of Ubuntu does not even ask root password and it's disabled by default (I think this is kinda stupid). So you have to use "sudo" command to gain root privileges. After using "sudo su" you can change the root password by using "passwd root" and then you can just use "su".

Great. I was thinking of sudo. I'll get these commands yet. Thanks.
