I guess I have just ignored that... all I do is go into /etc/shadow
turned the 0 to a special number and that is it. I never try to log in
directly as root only su into root. I guess I could use pfexec but I am
just used to su. If I am doing something dangerous (beyond rooting
around) then please let me know. I just like the way solaris 10 did it.
