No need to pseudo
Authored by: englabenny on Nov 20, '02 11:58:27AM
of course there is no need of extra software, starting finder as root can all be done from terminal:

first kill finder. (ps -urxc | grep Finder to get pid, then kill)
cd /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/MacOS/
sudo ./Finder

type your pass, and finder launches as root. And just hit ctrl-c in terminal to quit root-finder.
