This is a known issue in KDE 4.4.5. The set something as root 
functionality is not implemented.

KDE 4.6 uses PolicyKit for the login manager settings dialog. This has the 
advantage of not having to run the complete KCM with root rights - with 
all the implications like populating a ~/.kde directory in /root, but to 
ask for admin priveliges only when saving the configuration.

Samba settings do not seem to be ported to PolicyKit in KDE 4.6 yet. I.e. 
still greyed out.
