RE: How to autologin as a superuser

I would recommend su - (with a dash).  Su alone, will give the current user
roots rights and permissions, but with the users environment paths.  The
dash causes a new session to begin.  Try an su, and see how many files will
give command unknown errors, but su - will take care of that problem.

Once you have logged in as a user you can you can also log in as root
(or superuser) at the terminal prompt typing:

$> su

It will then prompt you for your root's password and you should get
another prompt symbol to denote the high right in privileges. On my
system, FC3, 


You can also log in as root when your computer boots by changing the
log-in name to "root" and then entering your password.

Hope this helps.
