	Are you logging in on the console or by ssh ? By default ssh does
not allow root login, it can be enabled but you should read up on the
security implications carefully before enabling it. I would expect console
login to work fine.

	As a general rule it is better to use sudo or su rather than
logging in as root, although for a single user system this doesn't really
make much difference.
