Default Enable root logins and solving display issues?

Hi
When I try to login as root in the default KDE graphical login manager, I get the following:
Root logins are not allowed.

I tried doing the following command to access network-admin
"
su
/usr/X11R6/bin/xhost +
network-admin
"

but I got the following error:
xhost: unable to open display ""

What is wrong? I came from Linux so is there some sort of sudo that I could use to adjust settings in my Gnome desktop environment?
