hi. i've created a new user in kuser other then root. i just hit add new user, gave it a name and password, and that was it. when i log onto that user name, i can't "su root" from the bash prompt. i know there are certain settings the user probably needs to have this permission. what is the setting i am missing, and how do i activate it? also, what other basic permissions do i want to grant?

You need to add that user to the wheel group, which is explained in a sticky in the Installing Gentoo Forum as well as in the FAQ Forum and probably is THE most asked, and answered, question in the whole of Gentoo-land.
