Edit /etc/opt/kde3/share/config/kdm/kdmrc, find the line with AllowRootLogin
and set it to true and restart kdm with "rcxdm restart"

But Fergus is right, it really is a very bad idea to run a full login as
root.
Better to run as a regular user, and just go to root for the few things that
require it
