10.5: Enable the root user
Authored by: GlowingApple on Oct 29, '07 10:58:51AM
sudo passwd root
also works to enable the root user. The password isn't set to anything (or to some null equivalent) by default and so the user cannot be used. Setting the password to anything enables the user.

Not as simple as the method the hint shows, but if you're using the root user, you should be comfortable with the Terminal anyway! ;)
