Gentoo is fully installed and KDE running. I want to get my net working and emerge something, but I can't without root access. Whenever I try to su, I get an "Permission Denied" error, even though the password is correct. Am I overlooking something here?

Thanks for any help.

Have you put your user in the wheel group? You have to do that.

Log in as root in a different console and add your user to wheel in /etc/group .
