OS: OpenSuSE 10.3

When I try to invoke YaST from KDE as a non-root user, it prompts me for
the root password but always says it is incorrect but I can bring up a
terminal screen, su - and it accepts the same password just fine OR I can
swithc to a character screen and login as root just fine using the same
password. What causes this strange behavior (which I have not experienced
from SuSE 9.0 until 10.3)? What can I do about it?

Hi Benji, in case you haven't sorted your problem out yet, try http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-factory/2008-04/msg00861.html
It looks like your problem.
