Thanks for any help

 su ?  or sudo?
Ric
su -
is really the best command.
Depends on how long you want to be on your machine with full root privileges (su - ; security issue) and which commands you need -- sudo is fine for a lot of tasks but of course depends on the configuration of sudoers.

The original question is how do move from user to root? sudo does not do
that. If you are root you have root priviledges. There is no way to get
around that.

Thanks everyone for your help it's for short term use.
