Just because I want direct root access through the GUI doesn't mean I don't know what I am doing. I have been a Linux (SuSE 8-OpenSuSE 10). This is the prob. with lots of stuff, companies do things like this to protect their customers from dumb mistakes. In SuSE-OpenSuSE I never had to do a su at CLI to get to root.
