Is this back to the issue that the GUI with KDM doesn't offer a root option?

If you want to stay in the GUI then you can run 'su' and then start yast.

If all you want if the command line then try Ctl-Al-t-F1 to get a root
prompt. This is, to my mind, the simplest way to get to
userdel/useradd, but then I generally use the CLI for root operations as
I'm a sysadmin of the old school. I admit that yast is good for many
things that are suse-specific or hardware specific and need more smarts,
but all to often yast is a shim for commands in /sbin & /usr/sbin. Its
value is in the checking and constraints it imposes.

As Andaei said, you should have set the root password when installing
the system.
