I prefer to keep the (default) list of users. Instead of forcing all users to type in their user name and password, in Mac OS 10.1.5, open System Preferences, click Login, then click Show "Other User" in list of network users. To login as root click on Other User in the user list.

>You'll also want to open System Preferences, choose >Accounts, then Login Options and change Display >Login Windows as: to Name and password. Then you >can log out and log in as the root user.
