Now before getting into the details of how to configure Linux for root logins, 
keep in mind that this is VERY BAD security. Make sure that you NEVER 
configure your production servers for this type of login.
By the way...simply edit the file /etc/securetty and add the following to the 
end of the file:

pts/0
pts/1
pts/2
pts/3
pts/4
pts/5
pts/6
pts/7
pts/8
pts/9

This will allow up to 10 telnet sessions to the server as root.

Keep in mind that remote root-loing either telnet is a very very very bad idea 
and you're putting your boxes at risk.
