I enabled root rather more simply in 10.4 by doing a 'sudo passwd
root' from the terminal. It works using 'su -' now in Terminal, I
havn't tried to log into the UI with it yet though.

If there's one thing that's never been self explanatory it's NetInfo.
I hate it. It's the one NeXT technology I wish they'd never adopted.
Yes it's probably good for networks and such like but it was half-
heartedly implemented in OS X and as time has gone on it's become
more and more of a thorn.
Apple are slowly ditching NetInfo in favor of conventional UNIX
configuration schemes like /etc files. Less and less tuff is using it
now, I think a good proportion of stuff was ripped out for Tiger, and
another big chunk has gone in Leopard.
