everyone else has suggested that you change the uid # in /etc/passwd to
0 which may very well do what you want but there is another mechanism in
place...sudo which might be more in line with security...

an entry in /etc/sudoers like...

craig   ALL=(ALL) ALL

would do something similar but you would have to supply root password to
have root privileges.

if you did something like this...

Cmnd_Alias IPOD=/sbin/modprobe -r sbp2
Cmnd_Alias EJECT=/usr/bin/eject /dev/sda2,/usr/bin/eject /dev/sdb2


then user 'craig' could do those specific commands without a password.
Suit yourself, it's your system but I would ***heavily*** recommend
against a real 'user' having a uid of "0"
