well its my turn to post a question:

i want to disable logining in as root directly, i just want
to be able to su - to root.

i have found guides and even been to the redhat site
but for some reason i can still login as root remotely
using ssh....i havent tried to login at the console so
im not sure if i can login as root there.

anyone accomplish this

i really hate to run bastille-linux on the box to get it
to work...cause i did that one day and it junked my
box and i had to reinstall linux....

/etc/ssh2/sshd_config

PermitRootLogin no
