Effectively that's what I want.
BUT neither 'root' nor 'superuser' is recognized by Gnome login screen :<
Edit /etc/passwd and change the UID and GID for your login to 0 (which
effectively makes you root). Then "chown -R root:root /home/username"
to your home directory. Now you can log in with your username but you
will be root.
That seems to have the effect I was looking for. I modified
some one else advice (suggestion main background color be
bright re) and chose a user name which conveys use caution
and st the top and bottom of screen red - whole screen being
red would not work well for me.
