You have a typo, it's passwd, not password. –  Jorge Castro May 5 '11 at 21:53

If you want that you can install "nautilus-gksu" which will give you root access on the right click menu.

If you want to be root in a terminal it is sudo su.

@robin0800 A more elegant way is sudo -s. See the community documentation for more details. –  Eliah Kagan Oct 2 '12 at 18:49
