Run any ScreenSaver from the Login window
Authored by: mazatty on Jun 16, '04 01:47:20AM

right, you don't need to "enable" the root account to do this.

all you need to do is start up System Preferences as root. to do this you can use sudo with an admin account, like so

sudo /Applications/System\ Preferences.app/Contents/MacOS/System\ Preferences

to help keep track of what apps are running as root, it's handy to change the appearance settings for root. if you use the Aqua appearance, set root's to Graphite.
