Some distros (debian based) you need to do sudo su, enter your password, and be on your merry way.

Some others i've used (I think it was Arch....Or gentoo...)

you just enter su, password, and root..

There IS a root terminal, though. Where you open it, it prompts you for your pw, and you are good to go.
