    is there a way to directly log in as root instead of having to log in as someone else and THEN having to change to super user?

    That would be a huge, huge security risk. You should NEVER allow remote root login.

    However, if you are set on this, login and edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config and look for "PermitRootLogin" and change variable to yes.

    Yes, I know about the security implications. This is just for setting up the server. Once the setup is done the root login will be disabled.

    Thanks for the info!
