Re: Root administration in windows XP pro
root is the "main account" for linux machines. What is the goal you are trying to accomplish here?
When you install windows xp pro, the account you create during startup is by default, an administrator account.
My guess is that you are running on an administrator account right now.
Nonetheless, try this:
click on start,
type: "cmd" (without the quotes) then hit OK
type in the following: (ent) means hit enter
net user danagol /add (ent)
net localgroup Administrators danagol /add (ent)
now an administrator account named "danagol" is created, which is not password protected. If you cannot do this, because you do not have admin rights on that machine; that's probably for a reason.
PS: Give linux another shot :P
