you really should not. but if you abosolutely want to, you can modify
/etc/ssh/sshd_config and add PermitRootLogin Yes, its either commented out
andn/or set to no, the default. If this is open to any other traffic except for
local lan, then just use the better approach....
ssh in and then `su - ` and enter roots password. of course to do this, you
must have entered your other user as part of group 'wheel'
