10.5: Enable the root user
Authored by: philb1701 on Nov 13, '07 04:57:50AM

I can see a big reason for wanting to know where the Root is. That being the problem with Leopard not always retaining Admin accounts when it is installed.
While you can easily put a password on the SA account then reboot to change the "Standard" user back to Admin, you might not want to leave Root accessable.

Now I know how to turn off the Root user access without having to muck about with Terminal.
