According to Carmony, this release includes out-of-the-box support for proprietary formats such as .mp3 and WMV, plug-and-play support for Ati and nVIDIA cards without user intervention, Click-N-Run, and much more.

Apparently they use sudo like ubuntu does. so to need a root command:
sudo ...command...
to open konqueror as root:
type: kdesu konqueror

(well ok that's how it works in kubuntu, but I assume it's the same in freespire now).

This is beginning to sound a whole lot like an Amway local get-together I dropped in on when a friend asked me to "investigate my own business," where the only folks who showed up were Amway distributors themselves.
