It's easier to tell who did what, and is slightly more secure (in a
security-through-obscurity sort of way), if you always log into your
machine as a normal user and use 'su' to become root. I notice the
word 'telnet' in your subject line, though; you really shouldn't send
passwords, especially your machine's root password, across the network
in cleartext, as telnet does. Use ssh instead.
