Where can I deactivate
Authored by: tiojuan on Oct 02, '02 10:14:16PM

You can just de-activate the root user altogether (which will require you to re-activate it anytime you need it but that should be infrequent). Launch NetInfo Manager from the Applications/Utilities folder and from the Security menu select "Disable root user". If you ever need to login as root again, go back to NetInfo Manager Security and select "Enable root user". As long as it's disabled so will the "Other user" option on the login panel.
