Type 'sudo bash' at a prompt and you'll be asked for your password.
Then you'll be logged in as root, running a bash shell.
You can also use 'sudo <any command you want>' and again will be asked
for your password. Then the command you specify will be run as root.
It's sort of a weird setup, but you get used to it. And I can
understand the reason the Ubuntu team does it that way.
