as the "what"... I have started logging in as repeater instead of as root,
but I do find it a bit of a pain having to enter the password every time I
want to "su -" though.

another server that has it. However, I didn't understand everything that I

repeater but still "su - root". I'm all for making things safer, but it was
easier logging in as root and only having to enter the password once - hi!
