Since the installation instructions said to start by doing 'su root'
and since I will be given root privileges on a University machine
shortly after the sun freezes over, I didn't even try.
University policy is that if a Unix machine is connected to the
University network, *only* department's designated sysadmin may know the
root password, even if you own the machine. This is for network
security/integrity reasons. Of course, the Mac sitting beside it is
wide open, and Windows boxes are hospitable to every passing virus,
but that's our IT Services for you.
