RE: su question

When you bring up your xterm window you first 
have login as "su" then give the root password. 
The system is done this way because Linux is a 
secured system, that and you don't want regular
users messing with necessary system files like
/etc/fstab in a LAN environment.

 howdy guys,

This is one of those things that has
been pestering me. while logged in as a user in x, how can I
edit files that require su privileges? (like /etc/fstab). I
usually su from eterm and "jed filename". can I su from within
emacs? nedit?
