After I'm already logon as guest, how do I switch to logon as root? :(

It's totally silly. Just logged off from guest to logon as root. :fool:

Those answers are okey to enter to the GUI as root.
I want to add another way (maybe a tip?). Press "ctrl+alt+F2"(Fn - n=number) and you'll be able to enter as another user in the command line. Type the user eg "root" and then enter the password "toor" and enter again. Then you'll be logged in as root while looged as guest (or root) in the GUI. To change to differents tty press again "ctrl+alt+Fn" ("ctrl+alt+F7 if you want the GUI") and so on and so forth.
