      That Sucks... but I don't think I have PAM.... I have SlackWare 7, not RH.
      Anyway, there is a internet service that on IRC network I'm on uses and
      sometimes I do a who and I see root logged in on pts/0 or some # like
      that... how did they do this? The main reason I would like root login
      remote would be so I have complete control without several "layers" down
      with users between. I would like not to get on the server console if needed,
      even tho it is sitting in my room :P

      Yup, just like root. Both root and this new user are UID 0, so as far as
      the system's concerned, both are root. The PAM routines that control
      login go by UID, not username.
