Just an additional comment -- this was probably dependent on what you chose
for your security level during the Mandrake setup. I believe if you chose
the high level security the settings for allowing root to logon at a
console were affected.
I recall that during one of my passes over the setup, I read the notes on
the security levels and the highest one was almost paranoid about some
things. (But, I admittedly cannot recall if this handling of the root
account in the security settings was specifically mentioned.)
