|If the root password had not been set, then the script would have to open a terminal window for the user to be able to enter a password, no?|
Or at least throw up some kind of error message that there's not a root password set. If curaga is right (I didn't know there's already a root password but hopefully it's randomized one-time-use like Finnix does so someone who figures it out can't pwn every "dsl@box" he sees) you probably want to have the user set one himself regardless. Even if a user uses "secure" cheatcode or has otherwise set one, all he has to do is remember what he used and re-enter it or enter a new one.
