 umm do You want to run in circles from one machine to another? ;o))
 if not than You need to remotely logon somehow, right?
 i think that ssh'ing into the machine and than than su'ing to root is no
 different than ssh'ing directly as root into that machine...
 (well when You do a su You leave a trace in logs of that fact, while You are
 directly ssh'ing into there is no info in logs on who actually logged on as
 root; there is some patch to <<at least partialy>> fix the latter and it was
 mentioned on debian-devel i think)
